AHRQ is examining how the patient centered medical home (PCMH) can promote patient and family engagement in primary care, ways to improve the delivery of mental health care by the primary care practice, and the role of the Health Information Technology and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act in developing and supporting medical homes. Three reports are now available:

  • Engaging Patients and Families in the Medical Home
  • Integrating Mental Health Treatment Into the Patient Centered Medical Home
  • Necessary But Not Sufficient: The HITECH Act and Health Information Technology's Potential to Build Medical Homes.
