​​​​​​The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is a coordinated, team-based approach to delivering your health care services. In addition to providing comprehensive, quality health care, your physician will ensure that:

  • Preventive screenings are completed
  • Care is coordinated with specialists when necessary
  • Chronic illness is effectively managed

The idea is to use processes that are systematic, patient-centered and coordinated to manage your care and improve your health. Patient-centered medical home is a model of care that strengthens the physician-patient relationship. You will be encouraged to establish a relationship with a primary care physician. Your physician will lead a team of clinicians that are collectively responsible for providing for your health care needs and arranging for appropriate care with other qualified clinicians and/or specialists. This model results in more personalized, coordinated, effective and efficient care.

An accomplished medical home environment is achieved through:

  • Increased accessibility to care for patients
  • Excellent communication among patients, clinicians, and staff
  • Utilization of an electronic health record system to prescribe, communicate, track results, obtain clinical support information and monitor performance
