Community health centers provide essential health services to all patients, even those uninsured or unable to pay. When these centers operate as patient-centered medical homes, they can care for patients more efficiently and effectively.

A new infographic by the Commonwealth Fund looks at some of the key characteristics of a patient-centered medical home and the growth of community health centers now operating as medical homes from 2009 to 2013.

Having established a firm foundation over two decades of patient-centered care, the medical home model is poised for a makeover, expanding to medical neighborhoods and opening the door to specialists’ enhanced role in care coordination—while embracing value-based compensation models that reward quality over quantity.

Those are just two of the trends explored in 2014 Healthcare Benchmarks: The Patient-Centered Medical Home, the Healthcare Intelligence Network’s in-depth analysis of medical home adoption, tools, technologies, challenges, benefits and outcomes.
