The online tool released by Emmi and TransforMED will help patients understand the value of the patient-centered medical home and seeks to engage and activate patients in their healthcare partnership with their primary care physician. Emmi worked closely with TransforMED staff and a number of technical advisors from across the country to create the content of the web-based educational tool. TransforMED will begin sponsoring the distribution of the online tool to primary care practices through its customers, contacts and via AAFP Chapters.
