    Nearly every Medicaid program in the country has pursued one or more patient-centered medical home (PCMH) initiative, and almost half are working with commercial payers in multi-payer initiatives. As PCMH models spread, hospitals face tremendous pressure to adapt to the payment and delivery system reforms brought about by these initiatives. The medical home is a model of team-based, advanced primary care that seeks to support patients, coordinate care and reduce unnecessary and inappropriate utilization of acute, specialty, and hospital care. Although the evidence is still emerging,recent literature indicates PCMH initiatives can reduce emergency and inpatient hospital utilization. While keeping patients out of the hospital is a welcome outcome for most patients, families, and insurers, hospitals face reduced revenue under many existing payment arrangements.

    Written in partnership with the Aspen Institute, the publication offers the first comprehensive look at the opportunities in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to drive better outcomes for children and parents together.  Using a two-generation lens, it explores both the possibilities and the gaps in the legislation and outlines its impacts across race, gender, and age. The publication highlights the openings provided through the ACA and Medicaid expansion to connect a vital health delivery system and economic stability and security.

    The ACA redefines how health insurance functions, significantly expands health insurance coverage, and accelerates changes already underway in how health care services are organized and delivered to patients.

    This series explores the evolution of primary care systems to better meet the needs of consumers with complex health conditions. It demonstrates that changes in the workforce are required to empower consumers to better manage their health.

    The series is a collaboration of the National Academy for State Health Policy and the AARP Public Policy Institute. We recognize that it takes a team of skilled professionals to deliver improved chronic care. In this series, we focus on how registered nurses—who make up the largest segment of the health care workforce—are being deployed in ambulatory delivery systems to take on new roles. Future series will focus on other members of the health care team.
