In 2010, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) awarded 14 Transforming Primary Care Practice (TPC) grants to conduct retrospective evaluations of successfully implemented or ongoing patient-centered medical home (PCMH) transformation efforts in primary care settings. The transformation efforts studied by the TPC grants varied considerably in terms of the size, type, and number of primary care practices included; the types of changes implemented by the practices; and the processes used to effect PCMH transformation. Because of these differences, the ways in which the transformations were evaluated also varied considerably. Our team reviewed the final TPC grant reports, as well as published manuscripts that resulted from these grants, and conducted interviews with TPC investigators to collect information about the outcomes of the transformation efforts and lessons learned.
