What Makes Medical Homes Work: Lessons for Implementation and Spread


Patients enrolled in the medical home program launched by Pennsylvania's Geisinger Health System receive higher-quality, more-efficient care than those receiving care elsewhere within the system. Interest has now turned to understanding factors associated with successful spread of the model and identifying which features are most associated with greater efficiency. In this project, a team of Geisinger researchers will study the 26 medical home sites and rank practice attributes according to their correlation with a reduction in hospital admissions, readmissions, and total medical costs. The results will guide health system leaders, payers, and policymakers as they target investments to support primary care transformation and national dissemination of the medical home model.
