To promote shared learning from the large number of medical home pilots and evaluations under way, The Commonwealth Fund established the Patient-Centered Medical Home Evaluators’ Collaborative in 2009. The Evaluators’ Collaborative seeks to align PCMH evaluation methods, identify common outcome measures, share best practices, and exchange information to improve evaluation designs.
The Evaluators’ Collaborative has developed a core set of standardized measures to evaluate cost, utilization, and clinical quality outcomes in PCMH evaluation studies. A May 16 webinar offered more detail about the consensus process and the recommended measures.
