What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?

 

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
