What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH)?
A PCMH is a care delivery model where a team of healthcare professionals work together to bring the focus back to what really matters - you. A PCMH is not one specific facility or location, but rather an approach that emphasizes whole-person care.
Under the PCMH model, patients participate in a care team led by a personal provider whose main goal is to provide comprehensive coordinated care for you and your family. With you at the center, your care team may involve a variety of individuals:
• Physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses and medical assistants
• Community health workers
• Rehabilitation therapists
• Behavioral health specialists
• And more
For more information, please refer to the Patient Forms and Information section above to download our PCMH brochure.
