TEAM APPROACH TO HEALTHCARE
Treatment coordinated through the clinic provider to ensure patients receive coordinated and meaningful care.
Patient-Centered Medical Home
At OnSite Care, patients receive coordinated treatment through their primary care physician located in the workplace clinic. The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is a model of care that aims to transform the delivery, effectiveness and outcomes of comprehensive primary care to children, adolescents and adults.
PCMH encompasses five attributes:
A team of healthcare providers, coordinated by the primary care physician, coming together to meet the needs of the patient and truly take an individual approach to managing care.
The patient is the center of a successful PCMH approach. The medical home model is relationship-based with an orientation toward the whole person. Partnering with patients and their families requires understanding and respecting each patient’s unique needs, culture, values and preferences. Recognizing that patients and families are core members of the care team, medical PCMH ensures that the patient is a fully-informed partner in establishing care plans.
PCMH coordinates care across the entire spectrum of the health care system: specialty care, hospitals, home health care, and community services.
PCMH delivers accessible services with shorter wait times for urgent needs, enhances patient experience through simple appointment-making, and 24/7 telephone and electronic access to members of the care team. The true difference in PCMH is that the team is responsive to the patient’s individual preferences regarding access.
Quality and safety
The PCMH demonstrates a commitment to quality improvement through activities such as evidence-based medicine and clinical decision support tools to guide shared decision making with patients and families. Engaging in performance measurement and responding to patient experience feedback is truly the pathway to a better outcome and lower costs for both the patient and the employer.
