Patient-Centered Medical Homes CAHPS (Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems)

The Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH) model encourages health providers to organize around patients and to coordinate with other providers as a team. A medical home is not a physical location; it's a way of providing care where the primary care doctors and clinicians serve as advocates for their patients, making sure that patients have a say in their own care and that patients receive the right care across all the parts of the healthcare system. These surveys are one source of data on patient experiences as reported on CompareMaine. Learn more at PCMH CAHPS
