The Medical home concept is to be Patient Centered, not provider or system or payer or population centered[INVALID]-this is adding confusion and undermines the principles that the Medical Home concept is based. The non primary care specialist need to participate, as always, in assuring the needed coordination of care with the PCP but unless they are the patients choice for the perponderance of the care that the patient needs, inclusing wellness, healthy lifestyle support, prevention etc. they are members of the care team but not the Patient Centered Medical Home.[INVALID]-
