Fridays with Ambulatory Care: Is PCMH the New Normal?
Heathcare in the United States has been, and is still, disastrous. Our respective professions have unfortunately evolved in a vacuum. The current infrastructure, thus, is divisive with patients’ safety hanging in the balance.
The affordable care act sought to address some of these disparities. In doing so, the 40 year old concept of the patient centered medical home (PCMH) resurfaced. Pharmacists are uniquely qualified to serve as part of the PCMH integrated team whether they practice MTMS, disease state management, or population management. It seems almost too good to be true though, a panacea of sorts.
Do you believe PCMH is the new healthcare landscape, or is it just another passing healthcare fad?

I believe that it is the new healthcare landscape. I see significant activity and dollars both from organizations and payors being applied to development of these new concepts and structures. Two of my colleagues and myself are currently one month in an integrated team model that is a venture between our organization and a payor. Too early for outcomes, but clearly the high risk patients we are seeing are very happy with it and for the practitioners, we certainly have had some wins with our patients. For us pharmacist we describe the practice as ambulatory pharmacy utopia.
