What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?
"You and your health care are at the center of the medical home team."
A patient-centered medical home is health care focused on you, the patient. It is a partnership between you and your medical home team, including your primary care doctor. As you require additional services from specialists and other healthcare providers, they’ll become part of your medical team as well. Therefore, PCMH is made up of health care professionals committed to improving your overall health and helping you reach your health goals.
A Patient Portal is fully available to patients in order to assist them to increase their involvement in their own care. We have fully implemented the Electronic Health Records (EHR) which help our providers and patients work together and, most importantly, help our providers deliver the best possible care.
