This report compares ten provider survey tools designed to measure the extent to which a practice is a 'patient-centered medical home' (PCMH). These tools are primarily used for recognition purposes (i.e., to qualify for entry into a payment pilot or demonstration), as opposed to for practice self-improvement, research/evaluation, or quality measurement. Our analysis, Our analysis, conducted for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, compares these ten tools' operational details (e.g., price, whether a site visit is required) and their content emphases (i.e., the different practice capabilities that the tools emphasize). We conclude by discussing issues for payers to consider when selected a PCMH recognition tool.
