The Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) is a model for providing comprehensive primary care for children, youth, and adults. The PCMH model aids partnerships between individual patients, their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient's family. The PCMH will enable:
Sun Life staff advocate for their patients to achieve health outcomes through a compassionate partnership between physicians, patients, and the patient's family.
Evidence-based medicine and clinical support tools guide decision making (PCP's use the latest health care practices to treat patients).
Primary care providers in the practice encourage quality improvement by engaging in performance measurement and improvement (Patients receive calls/ letters reminding them to come in for specific care).
Patients actively participate in decision-making and feedback is sought to ensure patient expectations are being met (Patients complete surveys).
Information technology is utilized appropriately to support optimal care, performance measurement, patient education, and enhanced communication (Electronic Health Records).
Sun Life believes this model enhances positive outcomes. Through this model, working together with their health care team, patients are able to achieve their best quality of life. To learn more about this care model, visit www.jointcommission.org.
