The Florida Department of Health Children's Medical Services has a statewide initiative to assist pediatric practices with Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) practice transformation and recognition.  The PCMH model has become a widely accepted standard with a variety of tools and processes that enable providers to more effectively deliver better care and achieve improved outcomes.

We have partnered with HealthARCH - a division of the University of Central Florida College of Medicine to assist us with this program.  A survey of pediatric practices is the first step in the process and will assist us with determining who among Florida pediatric practices is interested and ready to begin the medical home journey.

Your results will be kept confidential. The survey should take approximately 20 minutes. Educational content on PCMH is provided throughout the survey to help explain concepts and standards. We appreciate your time and assistance with this program.
