As more organizations road-test the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model of care, the need for a PCMH quick-reference intensifies. Enter Medical Home Improvement Guide Vol. III: Even More FAQs on Patient-Centered Care.

Picking up where Volumes I and II leave off, the queries in Volume III reflect the PCMH's newly minted status as a preferred care delivery model — one frequently touted in the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The 35-page Medical Home Improvement Guide Vol. III: Even More FAQs on Patient-Centered Care provides insight on emerging reimbursement models such as the accountable care organization (ACO) and bundled or episodic payments. It also delves more deeply into the PCMH's care coordination responsibilities for its elderly patients with complex chronic illnesses — including the management of care transitions, medication reconciliation and reducing the possibility of readmission to the hospital.

Responses are provided by such medical home heavy hitters as Group Health Cooperative, Geisinger Health Plan, Baptist Health System, Aetna Medicare, and many others.

A sampling of questions answered by the Medical Home Improvement Guide Vol. III: Even More FAQs on Patient-Centered Care include:

    • What payment modeling either has been done or is in pilot supporting sustainable accountable care organization (ACO) infrastructure?
    • What is the best way to distribute bundled payments?

    • How should a practice pick the three chronic conditions for NCQA tracking and medical home recognition?
  • Care Transition Management:
    • What types of patient education programs does Geisinger use to help with the patient’s role in the transition of care?
    • What strategies is Aetna using to predict risk at transitions in care?
    • Of the various entities that can be responsible for hospital discharge planning, which one is the most likely to have the greatest impact and why?
  • Case Management:
    • What are some guidelines for staffing a case management call center?
    • Should case managers conduct home visits with patients?
    • What is the educational background and experience level of the medical home case manager?

  • Medication Adherence:
    • What is a best practice for medication reconciliation?
    • How can primary care providers (PCPs) help to improve medication adherence in patients?
  • Reducing Readmissions:
