holders. The PCMH movement aims to partner every American with a primary health care provider who is responsible and accountable for ongoing care and care coordination.

During the Summit, health policy experts will present the latest information on the role the PCMH plays in health reform efforts, as well as the impact it already is making within public initiatives on both the state and national levels. Representatives from the White House and key lawmakers have been invited to address the PCMH within reform efforts. In other sessions, academic experts, consumer advocates and doctors already using the PCMH model will share best practices already proven in communities via demonstration projects and pilot programs across the country. Evidence from these pilot programs has demonstrated improved health outcomes as well as real cost savings by reducing the number of unnecessary tests, consultations and emergency room visits.

Studies of the PCMH model show that it improves patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes. It also lowers health care costs by improving care coordination and communication between primary care physicians and their patients.
