Researchers have shown that the PCMH model improves patient satisfaction, reduces healthcare costs, and improves patient health outcomes.
The PCMH model is associated with improved patient and provider satisfaction. The collaboration between the provider’s team and the patient helps patients feel more empowered and providers feel more engaged.
Members at PCMH practices have fewer unnecessary services such as visits to the emergency department and in-patient hospitalization stays. The Per Member Per Month (PMPM) cost for HUSKY Health members that go to a PCMH practice is lower than those who do not go to a PCMH practice.
The link to the NCQA report below provides evidence of improvement in quality outcomes. The PCMH program practices in CT have shown improvement in quality outcomes for the HUSKY Health population.
A report from NCQA contains studies and scientific evidence indicating that PCMHs are saving money by reducing hospital and emergency department visits, mitigating health disparities, and improving patient outcomes.
