What is a Patient Centered Medical Home?

The patient-centered medical home is a new way to provide healthcare. It is a model that improves people’s health and well-being by helping doctors proactively manage and coordinate care for their patients, increasing the use of preventive care and regular screenings, and supporting people with diabetes, depression, and other chronic diseases in new and innovative ways.

Rhode Island ranks higher than all other states in terms of the number of physicians per capita that are practicing in NCQA-recognized patient-centered medical homes.

The Rhode Island Chronic Care Sustainability Initiative (CSI-RI) is working with all major healthcare stakeholders to promote the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model and transform primary care in Rhode Island. Navigating the healthcare system is complicated. The PCMH model puts patients at the center of a healthcare team, led by their doctor, to make sure that all of the pieces are in place to keep patients healthy. This means improved care, lower costs and better health outcomes for Rhode Islanders.

CSI-RI is governed by a coalition of healthcare stakeholders, convened by the Office of the Health Insurance Commissioner. CSI-RI coalition members include payers, primary care providers, employers, state agencies, technical experts, and community organizations.

CSI-RI is focused on improving the delivery of chronic illness care and supporting and sustaining primary care in the state of Rhode Island through the development and implementation of a patient-centered medical home. The coalition’s work has resulted in one of the nation’s first nearly all-payer demonstrations of the medical home model of primary care.
