Abstract

The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is a health care delivery model that emphasizes chronic disease prevention and management provided by an interdisciplinary team. The inclusion of a registered dietitian (RD) in the PCMH is not yet standard practice. Based on encouraging outcomes for delivering high-quality, cost-effective care, the PCMHs will likely remain part of the future health care environment. Therefore, RDs should understand the PCMH and the varied ways that they can contribute. This article discusses RD involvement in the PCMH, the potential for a larger role of the RD, and implications for dietetics practice and future research.
