PCMH Overview

The Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) Person-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) program is based on the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home model of care.

Practices that implement the PCMH model provide person-centered, comprehensive, and coordinated care. Care is organized around the patient and led by a primary care provider who facilitates and coordinates a person’s healthcare needs with other healthcare professionals.

The PCMH model improves access to care, efficiency of care, and coordination of care, resulting in improved quality of care.
