What is a Primary Care Medical Home? PCMH Logo

The primary care medical home provides primary health care that is relationship-based with an orientation toward the whole person. La Clinica de Familia Healthcare Providers partner with patients and their families who understand and respect each patient’s unique needs, culture, values, and preferences. The medical home practice actively supports patients in learning to manage and organize their own care at the level the patient chooses. Recognizing that patients and families are core members of the care team, medical home practices ensure that they are fully informed partners in establishing care plans.

La Clinica de Familia focuses on five areas that define services patients receive and their providers work towards – Comprehensive Care, Patient Centered Care, Coordinated Care, Accessible Services, and Quality and Safety of Care.

– Primary care providers are accountable for meeting the large majority of each patient’s physical and mental health needs.

– Relationship-based primary care that meets the individual patient and family’s needs, preferences, and priorities.

– Care that is coordinated across all elements of the broader healthcare system.

– Enhanced access to primary care through a variety of means including expanded hours, email, and telephone communication.

– A commitment to safe, high-quality care through engagement in quality improvement activities and safety monitoring.
