Patient-centered Medical Home

A patient-centered medical home is a care approach that brings together an expert team focused on you. Patient-centered means that you and your health are always the focus of your care team. A medical home begins with your primary care clinic, where a team of professionals work together to provide you with a new, expanded type of care.

Your medical home includes:

    • Physician assistant or nurse practitioner
    • Medical assistant
    • Patient coordinator
    • Pharmacist
    • Case manager
    • Health educator
    • Behavioral health specialist
  • Coordination of all your care
    • Primary care
    • Hospital care
    • Specialty care
    • Home health care
    • Community services and resources
  • Access to your care team in person, over the phone or by email

Your care team commits to:

  • Partnering with you to help you meet your health goals
  • Listening to all of your concerns
  • Including you in decisions about your health care
  • Explaining your health care instructions
  • Answering all of your health care questions
  • Coordinating all your health care needs, including prescriptions, lab work and specialty care
