Metadata[+] Show full item record
Lack of sufficient primary care to manage chronic diseases has been quoted as a major drawback of the healthcare system within the United States. Patient-Centered Medical Home is a care delivery model to transform how primary care is delivered. The information technology revolution has brought about several advancements and solutions for medicine and care delivery, and medical homes are no exception to this. However, it is only through a robust decision support system that these medical homes can in fact provide truly coordinated and patient-centered care. The paper describes preliminary work that has been completed at the University of Missouri Health System and next steps in achieving high quality care delivery through a decision support system implementation.
