            The Patient’s Medical Home (PMH) 2019 vision charts the future of family practice

            (March 18, 2019, Mississauga ON) The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC)’s Patient’s Medical Home (PMH) 2019 vision positions family practices to respond to the evolving needs of Canadian communities—through collaboration, accessibility, continuity, and social accountability. The PMH 2019 vision builds on the original PMH goals, formulated in 2011, to respond to current health care demands. The PMH Provincial Report Card 2019 graded the performance of each province against the original PMH pillars. Together, the PMH Report Card and the PMH 2019 vision provide a baseline for a new standard in care, with a renewed focus on cultivating long-term relationships with patients and supporting community-based care.
