Are advanced medical home models the key to health care transformation? Patient-centered medical homes, which represent a team based approach to primary care, have long promised to improve care and value. And from private initiatives and federal demonstrations like the Independence at Home Practice Demonstration and Comprehensive Primary Care initiative, evidence is building that this promise can be realized. At this forum, our speakers will outline how federal policy can build on these successes, bringing superior primary care within reach for millions while holding down health care costs.
