Health Equity and the Medical Home

March 20, 2012

The person-centered medical home (PCMH) offers significant opportunities for Connecticut to achieve health equity. The Connecticut Health Foundation (CT Health) currently has a grant with the CT Department of Social Services to incorporate racial and ethnic health disparities into their implementation of the PCMH.

In this video, CT Health consultant Ignatius Bau (who has blogged for us before on this topic) discusses those opportunities. Next month, we’ll be releasing a policy brief that shares more on this topic – consider this a teaser of what’s to come.

    PCMH is such a great opportunity, or rather set of opportunities, to advance equity. Thanks for your comment Victor. Stay tuned for more about this topic from Ignatius Bau and CT Health in the coming month.
