A patient centered medical home is a medical office or clinic where a team of health professionals work together to provide personalized and cordinated medical care that is based on the current best medical evidence. The medical home team members help coordinate all acute, chronic and preventative care regardless of where that care is provided.
First and foremost is you– the patient- at the center of the team. Physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, medical assistants, and others like physical therapists and nutritionists work together to help you get healthy, stay healthy and get the care and services that are right for you.
The team members will get to know you and your life situation so that they can suggest treaments that make sense for you. They will help you understand all of your options for care and help you decide what is best for you. Team members will also make sure that you have a clear idea of how to care for yourself, help you set goals for your care. and provide information about classes, support groups, and other types of services to help you learn more about your health issues.
As a full partner in your care, you can learn about your health issues and do your best to follow the plan that you and your Medical Home team have agreed upon.
