Johns Hopkins, University of Maryland Physicians Help Lead Patient-Centered Medical Home Pilot

A group of physicians and nurses from the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore will join a collaborative to train primary care practices in a patient-centered medical home pilot program, according to a Washington Business Journal report.

The pilot program is part of the Maryland Learning Collaborative, which includes officials from the Maryland Health Care Commission and Community Health Resource Commission. The collaborative will visit practices and offer meetings and other educational efforts to learn the best way to set up PCMH programs.

Niharika Khanna, MD, an associate professor of family and community medicine at University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore, will direct the collaborative. So far, 55 primary care practices have signed on to be part of the pilot program.
