Medical Homes Networks - Primary Care at its Best!
The medical home, also known as the patient-centered medical home, is a more comprehensive way of providing primary care to patients.
A patient-centered medical home encourages patients to be active participants in their own healthcare plan. Patients are cared for by a physician who leads a medical team that coordinates all aspects of preventive, acute, and chronic care of patients using the best available information and most appropriate treatment. These relationships offer patients comfort, convenience, and optimal health throughout their lifetimes.
Patients who receive care from a medical home provider report higher satisfaction with care and better access to screening and preventive services. The medical home model of care has also been reported to be more cost effective when compared to other models.
