In this Health Affairs blog, the Altarum Institute’s Dr. Holly Korda questions whether current models of medical homes are in fact “patient-centered.”

Other commentators also have urged more attention to patient-centeredness as medical home demonstration programs receive increased attention:

Bechtel C and Ness DL. “If you build it, will they come? Designing truly patient-centered health care.” Health Affairs (2010); 29(5):914-920
