How do patients benefit from care in a Patient-Centered Medical Home?
Joseph Sofianek, MD answered:Patients in a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognized practice receive care under a model that strengthens the provider-patient relationship by focusing on long-term, coordinated, team-based care. Patients are at the center of the provider-led team that takes collective responsibility for comprehensive health care.
A medical home is intended to result in more personalized, coordinated, effective and efficient care. A medical home achieves these goals through providing high-level access to providers and team members by offering same day, evening and weekend appointments. The medical home also facilitates excellent communication by assuring prompt return of phone calls and notification of test results.
Additionally, the latest health information technology is used to prescribe medications, track test results and monitor quality in efforts towards continuous improvement. Bozeman Deaconess Health Group is proud to be the first Level III NCQA (National Committee on Quality Assurance) recognized primary care offices in the state of Montana.
