Patient Centered Medical Home
AHRQ has a PCMH Web site to provide decisionmakers and researchers with access to evidence-based resources about the medical home and its potential to transform primary care and improve the quality, safety, efficiency, and effectiveness of U.S. health care.
AHRQ has invested over $4.1 million to study the transformation of a primary care practice into a PCMH.
In 2011, AHRQ announced the funding of 4 cooperative grants to support sustainable state-level initiatives using primary care extension agents in small and medium sized primary care practices to assist with primary care re-design and transformation.
