The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is an interdisciplinary institution designed to secure and stabilize the primary care of the population. This form of care is characterized by a high degree of cooperation between individual specialist disciplines, the involvement of all participants (patient, relatives and nurses) and the constant clarification of the course of treatment. Especially in the US, which is characterized by its vastness and large rural areas, this model could improve medical care and facilitate access for people living there. However, it is necessary to generate and implement standards, particularly for the evaluation and implementation of these facilities, in order to demonstrate comparability of the performance achieved.
