Abstract The implementation of patient-centered medical homes has reinforced the need for interprofessional practice as the means to increasing patient quality. The nurse executive is well positioned to facilitate interprofessional collaborative practice; however, more sophisticated and focused strategies are needed for high levels of interprofessional partnerships that wholeheartedly ensure patient-driven health care. This article presents strategies to meet the needs of the patient as the interprofessional team coordinates activities across the continuum. Strategies include having a clear understanding of the patient-centered medical homes concept, clear articulation of patient centricity behaviors, selection of metrics that are actionable, competence in developing high-functioning partnerships, and processes to strengthen the organizational cultural to support interprofessional practice.
