Survey: Nurse care coordinators key to PCMH success

ANA SmartBrief | Jan 12, 2017

A survey of health care providers' attitudes about and awareness of patient-centered medical home programs found that having an external nurse care coordinator is key to success, and a PCMH model can be implemented at small practices even in the absence of third-party certification. "Small practices were receptive to external supports, but a lack of trust was viewed as a barrier to implementing a payer-based medical home program," the study authors wrote.
