    | *Background and case for changeHorizon did not have ongoing relationships with many physician societies in New JerseyPrimary care physicians were facing increasing administrative costs without the ability to easily generate additional revenue from traditional primary care practiceHorizons relationships with network primary care physicians where less than optimalThe state of primary care in New Jersey at near crisis. Few residents were staying in pure primary care fields and even fewer were planning to practice in New JerseyPrimary care manpower issues were magnified by expected increases in demand brought about by an aging population and the reduction of new primary care providersStrong foundations of primary care tend to characterized all well performing and efficient care delivery systems

    | *PCMH BACKGROUNDPCMH developed and promoted by all major primary care specialty societies as idealistic representation of primary care delivery Primary care office envisioned as initial source for access into delivery system for holistic patient care needs Primary cares value in well managed system lies in ability to care manage/coordinate services to populations of patients over and above the mere provision of basic services Health care is local and care management is best provided by personal physician within local delivery system

    | *Joint Principals -Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)Every patient should have an identifiable Personal PhysicianCare should be team based within a medical practice and led by a primary care physician There should be a Whole Person Orientation holistic view of medical practiceCare should feature Care Coordination and/or integration with all facets of the health care systemQuality and safety should be prominently emphasizedEnhanced access to care should be providedPayment/reimbursement to support this broader variety of services including care coordination is necessary and needs to be provided
