What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?
The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model is a way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communications, leading to higher quality and lower costs. The goal is to improve patients’ and providers’ experience of care. Emphasis is on aligning patient preferences with payer and provider capabilities.
Your Personal Pediatrician
The relationship between you, your physician, and the care team (clinic staff) is the driving force behind a Patient-Centered Medical Home. Your physician will provide medical care that is right for you based on evidence-based clinical guidelines and national quality standards shown to improve health.
Your Care Team
Your physician will direct the care team to coordinate your care based on your wants and needs. To improve efficiency, the team will plan for your appointment by reviewing your medical chart for up-to-date forms, check for recent testing, and ensure you are notified of results in a timely manner. The care team will work with you and any outside providers/facilities to effectively coordinate your healthcare across all specialties, including behavioral health. Your care team will make sure your appointment is timely, provide the specialists with your care summary before your appointment, and obtain the specialists’ recommendations after your appointment. If you are admitted to the hospital, 24/7 Pediatric Care Centers will upon discharge, review your hospital stay, make sure you return for follow-up care, and discuss any questions or concerns you may have about your treatment or medications.
Meet our team.
In return, we ask that you continue to be an active participant in your health care. We ask you to take charge of your health by responsibly managing and monitoring aspects of your care. You can help by providing us with a comprehensive medical history and informing your care team of any care that you have received outside of the practice. In addition, being prepared and on time for your appointment and bringing a list of your medications and questions, following the care plan your physician has developed for you, and letting your physician know when you can’t.
We are here when you need us; 24/7 Pediatric Care Centers provides 24-hour services for non-life-threatening illnesses, from doctors you know and trust. This elevated level of service ranges from standard pediatric care during the day to IV therapy through the night.
