Patient-Centered Care: Collaborative Efforts of Family and Geriatric Medicine in a Patient-Centered Medical Home

Session Year: 
Renee V. Girdler, MD Laura J. Morton, MD, CMD

This presentation will describe the seven elements of the Patient-Centered Medical Home model (PCMH) and how these elements parallel principals of care in the Nursing Home. Comparison and contrast will be presented by a family physician seeing patients in a PCMH and a geriatric medicine physician working in the nursing home. Application of these elements will be reviewed and evaluated to understand fragmentation of care and where improvements are needed.
