The effort to promote good health and deliver comprehensive, holistic, patient-focused medical care has finally come home. In February 2007 the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American College of Physicians (ACP), and the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) published their landmark Joint Principles on the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PC-MH).
This approach promises comprehensive primary care for children, youth and adults in a partnership between individual patients and their personal physician, who leads a team of health care professionals at the practice level and coordinates care across all elements of the health care system. Increased quality, patent safety, use of technology, performance incentives, accountability, and patient-centeredness are all hallmarks of the patient-center medical home model.
The National Medical Home Summit will bring together the leading authorities and practitioners in the medical home field to explore one of the most compelling concepts in health care today. The key building blocks of the medical home model will be discussed, and case studies will demonstrate how the model is actually working right now. A pre-conference workshop and training program will also allow individuals who want to take a deeper dive into the subject matter an opportunity to do so. Finally, the Summit will break new ground by permitting registrants to enjoy the complete Summit experience on line through both real-time and archived access to all Summit presentations.
