Developing the Medical Home Workforce

Monday, March 21, 2016

A pro-active multidisciplinary team-based care model was developed after identifying key skills and competencies needed for a patient-centered medical home workforce. The patient-centered medical home may solve many of the ills of our health care system; new health care payment methods support care team member roles and services in patient-centered medical homes; an enhanced skill set for the entire care team is needed for successful implementation; a redesign of training and education to support existing and incoming workforce is required; and a focus on inter-professional collaborative education is needed.
