Care coordination is only one aspect of patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) that can have a large impact in promoting health equity. PCMHs are primary care practices that create partnerships among a team of providers that serve and support consumers in improving their own health. In addition to care coordination, PCMHs track the population health needs of their patients, offer enhanced hours, and provide culturally appropriate care and services. The CT Health Foundation has published a brief, references, and a chart on the subject.
