Medical Home Tool Kit for DCs Now Available

The nonprofit Foundation for Chiropractic Progress has developed a comprehensive tool kit, " A Doctor of Chiropractic's Guide to PCMH Success," created, in the foundation's words, to " leverage the foundation's recently released white paper, 'The Role of Chiropractic Care in the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH).'" According to the foundation, the tool kit includes a national PCMH directory, a sample introductory letter for primary care physicians, and a Frequently Asked Questions section.

" This guide will help DCs thoroughly understand the PCMH concept and process, and the roles available to them," said Dr. Gerard Clum, foundation board member and a contributor to both the white paper and tool kit. " It provides materials to help familiarize oneself with the model and initiate constructive dialogue with local PCMH organizers, as well as outline the potential role of a DC as a PCMH director."

" It is important that chiropractic professionals take advantage of what has been laid out for them in regards to the PCMH opportunities," Dr. Clum added. " These materials provide the potential for chiropractic to be recognized for its valuable service, and allow DCs to work simultaneously with other providers within mainstream healthcare establishments. The benefits can only grow from here."
