A Team Approach to Quality Care
We provide health care as a team, with a focus on the individual patient. This model is often called a “patient-centered medical home.” It is designed to help patients stay healthier and to facilitate care when needed, often with shorter wait times.
Each dedicated health care team includes:
- A physician
- A nurse practitioner
- A social worker
- Administrative staff
Patients work with a care team to create a personalized and coordinated health care plan. The teams can help patients better understand their health care needs, maintain an accurate medication list and see specialists, if necessary. Patients are encouraged to play an active part in their health care by asking questions, communicating with their care team and collaborating to reach healthy goals.
If you have any questions about the patient-centered medical home model or would like more information, please speak with any member of your care team or call 617-724-8135.
