Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH)

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model is designed to promote comprehensive, coordinated, patient-centered care delivered by teams of primary care providers including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, medical assistants and receptionists as well as providers from other departments when needed. In a patient-centered medical home, a primary care provider and members of his or her team coordinates all of a patient’s health needs, including management of chronic conditions, visits to specialists, hospital admissions, and reminding patients when they need check-ups and tests. The medical home model supports fundamental changes in primary care service delivery and payment reforms, with the goal of improving health care quality.

As a PCMH, HCHC offers primary care that patients want: health care that focuses on you and your needs. We get to know you by working together in a long-term relationship; we make treatment decisions with you, based on your preferences; and we help you become engaged in your own healthy behaviors and healthcare.
