Patient-Centered Medical Home

Combine quality care and
patient safety

The patient-centered essence of the Medical Home practice model is an ideal fit with AAAHC as it pertains to quality care and patient safety. This model is best described as a philosophy of medical care that is patient-centered, comprehensive, team based, coordinated, and focused on quality and safety.

Obtain Patient-Centered Medical Home Certification

This onsite certification evaluates a practice against AAAHC Standards for a Medical Home. As with our accreditation program, our surveyors make an onsite visit to assess, at the point of care and from a patient perspective, how your organization meets these Standards.

We recognize that becoming a Patient-Centered Medical Home is a transformative process. The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) certification includes consultative support for your organization before, during, and after the survey.

Medical Home Standards focus on:

  • Patient rights and responsibilities
  • Organizational governance and administration
  • The patient/care team relationship
  • Comprehensiveness, continuity, and accessibility of care
  • Clinical records and health information
  • Quality of care
