eAlert 427da652-4b4b-4287-a7cd-ad96020ef88c

<p>Today, public and private initiatives across the country are testing the promise of the patient-centered medical home to provide better-quality, more efficient health care. But to evaluate and compare results and implement medical homes effectively, researchers need a standard set of measures. </p><p>A new Commonwealth Fund <a href="/publications/publication/2012/may/recommended-core-measures-evaluating-patient-centered-medical">data brief</a> describes how more than 70 researchers came together as part of the Patient-Centered Medical Home Evaluators’ Collaborative to identify a set of standardized measures to assess patient-centered medical homes. The brief focuses on two domains of medical home outcomes: cost/utilization and clinical quality. </p>
<p>Read the brief on <a href=""></a> and attend a <a href="/event/2012/measuring-success-patient-centered-medical-home-webinar">webinar</a> at 3 p.m., E.T., today to hear the authors discuss their consensus process and core measure recommendations. </p>
