Leaders facilitate PCMH transformation by charting the course for change and supporting and sustaining change efforts. A key role of leaders during PCMH transformation is to identify and allocate resources to best support PCMH transformation needs. Resources include time, dollars, staffing, equipment, technology and other types of support that either help staff implement or sustain PCMH key changes. Engaged leaders are physically present throughout transformation and sustain staff energy and motivation by working with staff to identify and remove barriers to transformation. Engaged leaders create a work environment supportive of PCMH transformation and give staff protected time and tools to make changes.
