Abstract This article discusses, Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative's (PCPCC) 2013 report highlighting published data on clinical, quality, and financial outcomes of U.S. initiatives to implement patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs). The 37-page report focuses on 21 studies published between August 2012 and December 2013, identifies the location and leaders of each initiative, and summarizes outcomes. An appendix describes 54 studies of PCMH initiatives that have been introduced since 2009. PCMHs have demonstrated notable improvements across a broad range of categories, including cost, utilization, population health, prevention, access to care, and patient satisfaction. The PCMH continues to play a role in strengthening the larger health care system, specifically accountable care organizations and the emerging medical neighborhood model. Significant payment reforms are incorporating many features of the PCMH model. When fully transformed primary care practices embrace the PCMH model of care, consistent positive outcomes will follow, the authors conclude. The report, which is available on the PCPCC Web site at www.pcpcc.org/resource/medical-homes-impact-cost-quality, was made possible with support from the Milbank Memorial Fund.
