Abstract

As the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model has evolved nationally and in Rhode Island, there has been increased recognition that PCMH has not been sufficient to achieve desired cost and quality goals. In this article, we describe the evolving concept of "comprehensive primary care" in Rhode Island, which includes addressing the behavioral health and social determinants of health (SDOH) needs of patients. These needs are identified through systematic screening and dedicated care management and care coordination for patients who present with complex needs.
