Online Modules

Welcome to the Online Learning Modules for the Patient-Centered Primary Care Home 2014 Standards for Recognition.


These modules are an essential educational resource for Oregon’s model of primary care home redesign.  The modules may be completed in any order and at your own pace, and each includes links to additional information and resources.  The system will track your progress so you can start or stop at any time. The first module is an introduction to the foundational concepts of the primary care home.  Six additional modules describe the 10 must-pass standards and the 23 other standards clinics can meet to earn points toward becoming officially recognized as a Patient-Centered Primary Care Home (PCPCH).  Along with the Technical Specifications and Reporting Guide, these modules provide background, practical advice and examples for each PCPCH standard.


The online modules may be accessed by anyone at any time – all you need to do is complete a brief registration page and you’re ready to get started.

This will be such a great help to people on-boarding; we really would have liked to have this when we were applying for PCPCH recognition last year.

This would have been very helpful when I first started as a Clinical Care Coordinator. These modules are an ideal beginning and reference guide to understanding the complexities of the PCPCH, and the introduction module is very helpful because the medical home concept is new to many people.
