Federal funding for patient centered medical homes study brings high expectations
11.24.2010After the federal government selected patient centered medical home projects in eight states for funding, experts are hoping for positive results. The funding will help researchers study the ways in which the model can improve the healthcare delivery system.
Some have said that the patient centered medical home - which involves a greater degree of cooperation and coordination between various healthcare providers - could provide many benefits. Many experts have focused on the potential ability of the model to reduce healthcare cots while improving quality for patients.
As many as 40 healthcare providers throughout the state of Michigan will take part in the study. Jean Malouin, associate chair for clinical programs at the University of Michigan Medical School’s Department of Family Medicine said that she hopes the research will show the world how patient centered medical homes can revolutionize care.
“This is a chance to highlight and build on the outstanding work that is going on in primary care practices throughout the state,” she said. “Although [University of Michigan] practices are not participating in this project, we are very supportive of this effort.”
