Patient Centered Medical Home

What is a Patient Centered Medical Home?
You may hear the term medical home more and more often and wonder just what it means.  The Medical Home is not a building or a place.  Instead, it is a new approach to providing healthcare that puts patient and family first. Instead of a system structured with different priorities for various segments of healthcare, the Medical Home is organized around the needs of the patient. It is sometimes referred to as Advanced Primary Care, recognizing that primary care doctors traditionally specialize in exactly this approach.

The Patient Centered Medical Home aims to give the right care in the right place the first time.

Medical Home certification is granted to practices that go through a voluntary recognition process by a non-governmental entity to demonstrate that they have the capabilities to provide patient centered services consistent with the medical home model.  The ©National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has granted Patient Centered Medical Home certification to certain Hunterdon Healthcare System practices listed below.

In a Patient Centered Medical Home certified practice, a team headed by the patient’s personal physician delivers care. The personal physician tracks and coordinates the patient’s care over time.  The physician and the patient create a partnership and make decisions about healthcare together.  Quality and safety drive the decisions, using guidelines based on evidence rather than tradition.  Of course, this may mean that more care is not always better care.   Hunterdon Healthcare Partners has worked hard to ensure that evidence-based guidelines are used in our system.

Hunterdon Healthcare is committed to care that is coordinated and integrated across all elements of the complex health care system (subspecialty care, hospitals, home health agencies, nursing homes) and the patient’s community (family, public and private community-based services). Hunterdon Healthcare’s Collaboration Guideline and Agreement among primary care and specialty care physicians is integral to this, recognizing the importance of transitions of care in the outpatient setting, the emergency department, and during hospitalization.

Hunterdon Healthcare’s Medical Home practices provide distinctly different options for their patients to support their personal health goals.  We emphasize self-management support.  The patient, with support from a team of physician, nurses, social workers, care managers, dietitians, pharmacists, physical and occupational therapists, and other health care professionals, becomes engaged in his health care. 

Robust electronic systems allow information to be shared and coordinated among different segments of the healthcare system.  The patient can communicate with the team more easily, and the doctors communicate regularly to benefit the patient.
