We are proud to be a patient centered primary care home

We are proud to be a PATIENT CENTERED Primary Care Home!

  • In our little corner of Oregon, we are taking it one patient at a time and we are positively impacting those patients’ lives.

  • We can’t yet prove that our impact is community-wide, but we are improving patient engagement and education.

  • The only way we can stem the tide of health care spending AND improve the health of our communities is to be champions for all patients, one patient at a time.

  • HOWEVER, we can’t keep doing this work without a system that supports us. If we build the system around what each patient needs, we will move in the right direction.

  • We need a liaison present as part of our care team and network to gain an understanding of our community, our practice, and most importantly, our patients.

A Transformative Innovation for CCO’s:

    • Know the individual practices within each community.

      • Help practices move along the continuum of PCPCH.

      • Ensure that CCO policies support PCPCH success.

    • Help build trust among providers in each community.

    • Focus CCO attention and resources on key areas to truly improve community health.
