What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?

    • Annual physicals
    • Up-to-date immunizations
    • Age and gender appropriate testing such as mammograms and colonoscopies

    • Health seminars
    • Printed handouts
    • Online resources

What is my role in this model of healthcare?

 

To optimize your level of care:

  • Provide your doctor with a complete history of:
    • Recent medical conditions
    • Care provided by other doctors including emergency or specialist visits
    • Newly prescribed over-the-counter treatments and medications
  • Follow your provider’s recommendations for:
    • Scheduling and keeping your appointments
    • Completing any ordered tests, consultations or treatments
  • Maintain a healthy weight and physical activity level
  • Refrain from smoking
  • For after-hours care in a non-life-threatening situation, contact your doctor’s office before proceeding to the ER
