Why don’t more patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) employ CHWs despite the evidence that they make a difference? This qualitative study researched facilitators and barriers to integrating CHWs in PCMHs in Minnesota and defines the roles of CHWs on these care teams. The study found four factors that influenced use of CHW models :1) leaders who championed the CHW model, 2) a clinic culture that was open to innovation; 3) clinic prioritization of patients’ nonmedical needs, and 4) leadership perceptions of sustainability.
