HHS awards more than $8.6 million for health centers to improve care coordination and become Patient-Centered Medical Homes
Today, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell announced more than $8.6 million in funding for 246 health centers in 41 states, the District of Columbia, the Federation of Micronesia and the Northern Mariana Islands. The awards will help to improve quality of care and patients’ and providers’ experience of care through the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) health care delivery model.
“These awards will help health centers deliver comprehensive care that puts the patient at the center,” said Secretary Burwell. “More families in communities around the nation will have access to medical homes where a range of health care needs, including oral health, primary care and behavioral health services, can be coordinated and met.”
