According to this study:

  • Patient-centered medical homes can improve outcomes in low-income populations, but the effects are modest.
  • Patient-centered medical homes had a positive effect on quality of care and on patient and provider satisfaction with care, but had little effect on the overall cost of care in this patient population.
