Patients have the responsibility to provide accurate and complete information about medical complaints, past illnesses, hospitalizations, medications, pain, and other matters relating to their health and follow the treatment plan recommended by those responsible for their care.
PCMH provides info to the patient about the patients right to obtain care from other clinicians within the PCMH, to seek a second opinion, and to seek specialty care.
PCMH improves the care our patients receive by offering enhanced access to care and increased Primary Care Manager continuity, and by promoting patient and family-centered evidence-based health care. PCMH provides care that addresses various phases of a patient’s lifespan, including end-of-life care, to include population-based care.
The Patient Centered Medical Home is an interdisciplinary team-based on individual patient needs built around the premise that the best health care begins with a strong primary care foundation. Examples are Pharm-D, Primary Care, Behavioral Health RN, Sports Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and more.
