Partners in Internal Medicine strives to provide the most comprehensive and personalized care for our patients.
We are seeking certification as a Patient Centered Medical Home.
The patient-centered medical home—one of modern health care’s most important innovations—is a model of care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into “what patients want it to be.” That means, we have met standards for patient communication and care coordination so you can count on us to understand and direct your full medical care as your partner.
The PCMH is a model of healthcare based on an ongoing, personal relationship between a patient, doctor and the patient's care team. Whatever the medical needs – primary or secondary, preventive care, acute care, chronic care, or end-of-life care – the patient has a medical "home"; a single, trusted doctor and care team, through which continuous, comprehensive and integrated care is provided.
Patient satisfaction, delivered in accordance with an agreed care plan, is the hallmark of the PCMH. Patients who receive care through the PCMH model will benefit from the following:
Access to doctors that utilize improved technologies to stay better connected with the medical community and manage care more efficiently.
Improved access to care through easier scheduling of appointments and extended office hours.
More focused, personal interaction with doctors and care teams that will help navigate through the complex healthcare system.
A more comprehensive delivery of primary care through the improved coordination of care, managed by the patient's personal doctor and their care team.
