03/23/16 Portland, Ore.
Australian publication, Croakey, featured - among others - the work of Jen DeVoe, M.D., D.Phil, in "Patient-centered medical home model: how could it work in primary health care in Australia?"
In talking about Dr. DeVoe's success with the "community laboratory" model, author Nick Zwar wrote, "Professor DeVoe, a family physician, health service researcher at Oregon Health and Science University, and President of the North American Primary Care Research Group, said the PCMH model had enabled the establishment not just of 'medical homes' but of a 'village' of practices to share resources and data."
He went on to explain that the PCMH model has enabled the establishment of OCHIN, which now shows us the data of one million patients across 300 primary care sites and 18 states. Using this information, Dr. DeVoe's team and other research teams can better understand the impact of insurance status on patients' lives.
