Department Promoting “Medical Home” Care Approach

Wyoming Medicaid, part of the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH), is touting the benefits for both patients and providers from what’s known as the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) care model.

Dr. Paul Johnson, Wyoming Medicaid medical director with WDH, encourages patients to seek out practices recognized for offering the PCMH approach. “We have seen this model help improve care with healthy results such as higher rates of preventative services and screenings.”

Patient benefits described by Johnson include:

  • Stay healthier with more preventative care
  • Better communication with better access to clinical advice and medical records
  • Better manage chronic conditions
  • Have a better experience with team-based care

To encourage doctor’s offices and clinics to offer the PCMH care model, Wyoming Medicaid has a series of standards for practices to meet to earn accreditation. “Wyoming medical practices that achieve PCMH recognition with us may see some significant benefits,” Johnson said.

Advantages of PCMH accreditation may include:

  • Enhanced reimbursement support from federal, state and commercial payers
  • Improved efficiency and lower practice costs
  • Additional recognition from patients that a practice offers enhanced services and higher quality of care
