Report: New York PCMH Programs on the Rise

Share on Facebook
A report from the United Hospital Fund suggests growth in the number of patient-centered medical home providers in New York State.

The United Hospital Fund report found that PCMH providers in the state grew by 42 percent from July 2011 to September 2012, to 5,312 total PCMH providers in the state.

New York City is home to more than half of the state's PCMH providers, with 2,768 inside the city. However, the Syracuse and central New York region experienced the most growth, jumping from 160 PCMH providers in 2011 to 493 this year.

The study found that the most statewide growth happened in large groups, and health centers that were more likely to have the scale necessary to support the investment and capital that becoming a PCMH requires.
