At Susarla Primary Care we are pleased to offer the Patient Centered Medical Home as our patient care model.
The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model is an approach to providing comprehensive primary care for children, adolescents, and adults. The PCMH is a healthcare practice module that facilitates partnerships between patients and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient's family. This definition was laid out by the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Osteopathic Association in the 2007 Joint Principles for the Patient Centered Medical Home. This defines critical principles within the PCMH model:
- Access to a personal physician who leads the care team within a medical practice
- A whole-person orientation to providing patient care
- Integrated and coordinated care
- Focus on quality and safety
Through the medical home model, Susarla Primary Care seeks to improve the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of the care we deliver, and to ensure that the activities within the practice are focused on meeting patient needs first. The PCMH model allow us to seek and foster a relationship of trust between the care team and the patient. We love to be actively engage patients as partners in their health care. Please see this Patient Centered Medical Home diagram below so you can understand our practice model.
We are proud to offer this patient centered approach to healthcare. We use this approach with patients of all ages
