Patient-Centered Medical Home

Watch the Introduction to Patient Centered Medical Home Video

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is not a new idea. Over the last few years however, the concept has taken on a new meaning. Today, PCMH desires to create a place you can come to for all your medical needs. Your medical home.

PCMH is a concept where patients take an active role in their own health care, working closely with their primary care physicians to navigate through the health care system. The primary care physician coordinates all of their patients’ care, manages chronic conditions, tracks all medications and lab results, offers extended office hours and works with other health care professionals in an effort to promote total health care and avoid complications.

Like any home, there are many components that make it complete. The foundation of the PCMH is a partnership between you and your doctor, where you have shared duties for your health needs. You expect your doctor to be there when you need care, and your doctor expects you to help in taking an active approach to your own health care. Together, you build a strong foundation for your medical home.

Won’t you join with your doctor to build your medical home?
