Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH)
We’re a Medical Home… but What’s That?
At PriMed, we are your medical home base for coordinating all your healthcare needs. But “medical home” isn’t an actual building or facility.
Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) means providing you with access to coordinated health services, from a team of healthcare professionals who you know and trust. PriMed adopted the “Patient-Centered Medical Home” model of care, which uses technology like electronic medical records and a care-team approach to put you at the center of your own healthcare. Because your personal health information stays with you, the PCMH concept streamlines care delivery and improves quality by ensuring that all of your primary and specialty caregivers are on the same page. PriMed believes patients should be at the center of care. That means we’re not just focused on your current medical problems. Your doctor and the entire care team can take care of you when you are sick, and also when you are well.
