A Patient Gateway
NOT a Gatekeeper
The doctor leads a team who collectively provide ongoing care.
Team provides all patient care needs or arranges for care with other qualified professionals.
Information technology links all elements of care (e.g. hospital, specialist, home health agency, nursing home) and the patient’s community (e.g. family).
Creates payment structure recognizing added value provided to patients.
Robust partnership among physicians, patients, and their families; evidence-based medicine and CDS support tools guide decision making; IT supports optimal patient care and enhanced communication.
Expanded hours, open scheduling, better communication.
MEDICAL HOME CARE
My patients are those who make appointments to see me
Our patients are those who are registered in our medical home
Patients’ chief complaints or reasons for visit determines care
We systematically assess all our patients’ health needs to plan care
Care is determined by today’s problem and time available today
Care is determined by a proactive plan to meet patient needs without visits
Care varies by scheduled time and memory or skill of the doctor
Care is standardized according to evidence-based guidelines
Patients are responsible for coordinating their own care
A prepared team of professionals coordinates all patients’ care
I know I deliver high quality care because I’m well trained
We measure our quality and make rapid changes to improve it
Acute care is delivered in the next available appointment and walk-ins
Acute care is delivered by open access and non-visit contacts
It’s up to the patient to tell us what happened to them
We track tests & consultations, and follow-up after ED & hospital
Clinic operations center on meeting the doctor’s needs
A multidisciplinary team works at the top of our licenses to serve patients
Slide from Daniel Duffy MD School of Community Medicine Tulsa Oklahoma
“Not surprisingly, those patients with the strongest relationships to specific primary care physicians were more likely to receive recommended tests, and be adherent with medicationsand preventive care. In fact, this sense of connection with a single doctor had a greater influence on the kind of preventive care received than the patient’s age, sex, race or ethnicity.”
