PCMH Medical Director
What is a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and why should a patient consider this for their primary care?
The Patient Centered Medical Home is a care delivery model whereby patient treatment is coordinated through their primary care physician to ensure they receive the necessary care when and where they need it, in a manner they can understand. The PCMH coordinates care across all elements of the health care system, including specialty care, hospitals, and community services and supports.
What makes the PCMH different from other practices:
The objective is to have a centralized setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patient's, and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient's family. Care is facilitated by registries, information technology, health information exchange and other means to assure that the patient gets the indicated care when and where he/she needs and wants it, in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner. At our clinic we strive to provided personalized patient centered care with each visit that is comprehensive, taking into account patient's physical and mental health care needs, including prevention and wellness, acute care, and chronic care.
The PCMH provides accessible services such as shorter waiting times for urgent needs, enhanced in-person hours, electronic, access to a member of the care team, and alternative methods of communication such as email and telephone care.
