Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)
Patient-centered medical home is health care focused on you, the patient. It is a partnership between the patient and the patients doctor. The patients doctor leads a team of health care professionals committed to improving your overall health and to helping the patient reach the patients’ health goals.
The team in the patient’s patient -centered medical home looks at the patient’s whole health picture. They spend more time with the patient at the patients visit. PCMH aims to prevent problems from occurring and puts control of the patient’s health where it belongs- with the patient and the patients team.
Instead of being treated for a problem without making a connection between symptoms, the patient-centered medical home focuses on connecting the dots and coordinating the patients care.
