Abstract

Robert Berenson and colleagues caution that the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) faces many challenges. Its successful adoption will depend on its being precisely defined and demonstration that it is cost saving and scalable across varied clinical settings. Until these issues are addressed in current and upcoming pilot programs, caution about the PCMH's role in the care of people with chronic illnesses is warranted.
