The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is being increasingly recognized as an important component of a national health care reform strategy. Key attributes of the PCMH model include an expanded scope of health education and care management services offered by the primary care provider, as well as an enhanced focus on coordination and integration of care delivery. Implicit in this model is the development of a trusting, collaborative relationship between clinician and patient, to provide a better understanding of health issues, promote engagement and adherence to recommended treatment. This session will provide an orientation to the medical home model and the evidence in support of the value of PCMH. Evidence demonstrating the importance of the patient-provider relationship and its relevance to worksite clinics will be reviewed, followed by a presentation of considerations regarding PCMH and worksite clinic integrated care delivery. OEM clinicians will benefit from gaining a better understanding of the PCMH concepts, to provide them with practical insights into how this strategy can be best integrated with current worksite clinics and other workplace health and productivity-related initiatives to build “cultures of health.”
