A study by the HealthPartners Research Foundation showed that patient-centered medical homes may help reduce total and outpatient care costs for individuals with complex conditions. Researchers said PCMHs helped curb overall costs by $446 per patient in 2005 and by $184 in 2009, while outpatient expenses were lowered by $241 per patient in 2005 and $54 in 2009. Patients with complex cases were defined as those taking at least seven medications.
