New international health survey of sicker adults: Those with a medical home fare better
Date:11/8/2011

New York, NY, November 9, 2011Chronically and seriously ill adults who received care from a medical homean accessible primary care practice that helps coordinate carewere less likely to report medical errors, test duplication, and other care coordination failures, according to a new Commonwealth Fund international survey of patients' experiences in the U.S. and 10 other high-income countries.
