In keeping with strategies outlined in health care reform initiatives, Methodist Health System has implemented the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model of care. PCMH is a team-based model, led by a personal physician, who oversees the care process to provide maximum health outcomes for patients.
Healthy outcomes for patients are achieved by implementing the following:
Treatment of acute and chronic illness
Care coordination and integration
Self-management support (involving patients in their health care goals)
The core of the concept is a holistic approach to health care, actively involving patients and their families in the health care process.
A key component of the medical home program is a Health Coach, who works with the patient and physician to oversee a patient’s care and achieve healthy outcomes.
The Health Coach, adult patients and physician form a team to manage treatment of acute and chronic illness with preventative services and enhanced communication.
The goal of this approach is to reduce hospital admissions, emergency department visits and improve the health of patients.
Methodist Physicians Clinic Family Medicine and Internal Medicine clinics have been accredited by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
The NCQA strives to improve health care quality by working with employers, policymakers, doctors, patients and health plans to determine accreditation criteria.
