Understanding Medical Homes: A Survey of Patients and Physicians in Primary Care Practices in Denmark, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom


The medical home concept is gaining traction in the United States, and it has received strong endorsement from many policymakers. This project is intended to provide a more complex and nuanced understanding of how medical homes work by surveying physicians and patients in primary care practices in Denmark, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom—all countries that have strong primary care infrastructures and that typically outperform the U.S. in international comparisons. Combined with findings from a parallel survey of U.S. primary care practices, the three-nation survey will help assess the interaction and relative importance of characteristics of primary care practices and health care delivery models in responding to patients' care preferences.
