Currently, we are moving toward becoming a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH). You might be wondering what that is or what it means for you as one of our valued patients. To learn more, please review the information below.
WHAT IS A PATIENT-CENTERED MEDICAL HOME (PCMH)?
Led by your primary care provider, a PCMH is a system of care that allows you to have a personalized care team. Your team may include nurses, health educators, specialists or any other medical personnel who are ready to help you achieve your health and wellness goals.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Teamwork – Your care team will work with you and your family to design a care plan that’s best suited for your wellness needs.
Prevention – Learn how to self-manage chronic conditions (such as asthma and diabetes) to help stay healthy.
Easy Access to Care – If you need to reach any member of your team, simply call 203-503-3000 during normal business hours. A member of your team will provide you with the appropriate contact information should you need to access them after-hours.
OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU
As partners committed to you and your wellness, we’ll work with you and your family to coordinate easy access to care. We’ll help you select a primary care provider (if you don’t already have one) and will involve you in every step of your care plan. Our electronic health record technology will allow us to easily and efficiently coordinate your plan both with you and with your team. Your new team will be there to coach and encourage you to meet your wellness goals. We’ll also refer you to other providers as needed, including specialists or second opinions outside Cornell Scott-Hill Health Center.
YOUR COMMITMENT TO YOU
By sharing your health history with us, you allow us to design care plans that will be customized specifically for you. We’ll give you the tools necessary to help light your path to wellness. By maintaining these wellness goals, you’ll show your commitment to yourself and your family that you are dedicated to your health. Having trouble sticking to one of your goals? No problem. Just contact a member of your care team and they’ll work with you to create alternatives.
