Welcome to Your Medical Home

When it comes to your health, you’re seeking wellness, recovering from illness or managing a chronic condition. It’s a cycle of staying well, getting well and being well. If you deal with these health situations in a long-term relationship with a trusted physician, then you’ve found your Patient-Centered Medical Home.

Think about it. Your personal provider and an extended team of health professionals build a relationship in which they know you, your family situation, your medical history and health issues. In turn, you come to trust and count on them for expert health care answers that are suited specifically toward you and your family.

A Medical Home is not a physical building. Instead, it's a “home base” for your health care needs. It is the way care is given, the people who give the care and the place where this happens. A Medical Home is a partnership between the physician-led health care team and an informed patient. 

The Medical Home Advantage

When you have a Medical Home, there are many benefits.

Advantages

Comprehensive care means your medical home helps you address any health issue at any given stage of your life.

Coordination of care occurs when the combination of services you and your provider decide upon are connected and ordered in a rational way, including the use of resources in your community.

Continuous care occurs over time when you can expect continuity in accurate, effective and timely communication about the services you want or need, from any member of your health care team.

Accessible care allows you to initiate the interaction you need for any health issue with a doctor or other team member through your desired method (office visit, phone call) and you can expect elimination of barriers to the access method of your choice.

Proactive care ensures you and your provider will build a care plan to address your health goals to keep you as healthy as you can be plus be available for you when you get sick.
