Slide notes:Quality and safety are important characteristics of the model. Quality and safety measures are incorporated as an essential component of patient care. Patients are encouraged to achieve patient-centered outcomes and are assisted by a care planning process and a strong partnership between the physician, the patient, and the patients family. Clinicians use evidence-based medicine and clinical decision support tools to guide their decision making in order to ensure a standard of quality and safety that is acceptable. The patient-centered medical home emphasizes quality and safety of care. The model uses information technology to support patient care and makes use of tools such as performance measurement, patient education, and enhanced communication to improve quality and safety. 9
