Patient Centered Medical Home and Mountain Laurel Medical Center
The Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model for the delivery of primary health care in an office setting that is becoming widely implemented across the country as a means build a reliable primary health care system that delivers accessible, affordable and high-quality health care.
The medical home model is built on four general concepts and attributes for medical practice. It is Patient-Centered. The primary care medical home is oriented to the whole person emphasizing a partnership with the health care provider, the patient and their family respecting the patient’s unique needs, culture, values and preferences while actively supporting the patient’s ability to learn about and manage their own health care.
The Patient Centered Medical home provides Comprehensive and Coordinated Care. PCMH strives to meet the majority of each patient’s physical and mental health care needs, including prevention and wellness, acute care and chronic care. This comprehensive care will be coordinated by a “team” of health care staff which will include physicians, advanced practice nurses and physician assistants, nurses, medical assistants, care managers, educators, social workers and the entire office staff working together to enhance the care and service within the office and community resulting in improved clear and open communication among patients and families, the medical home and the members of the broader care team.
PCMH provides for Superb Access to Care. The primary care medical home delivers accessible services with shorter waiting times for urgent needs, enhanced office hours and around the clock access by telephone to members of the health care team. The medical home practice is responsive to patient preferences regarding access.
Patient Centered Medical Home is a Systems-Based Approach to Quality and Safety. The primary care medical home is committed to quality care and quality improvement by ongoing utilization of evidence-based medicine and the use of tools and support guides to improve shared decision making with patients and families and the regular use of practice measurements and monitoring to improve patient care and outcomes while also measuring and responding to patient experiences and satisfaction.
Since its opening in 2006, Mountain Laurel Medical Center has been committed to providing high quality medical care combined with dedicated medical care staff utilizing state of the art diagnostic equipment including electronic medical records. Mountain Laurel Medical Center was one of approximately 50 practices selected by the Maryland Health Care Commission to implement the PCMH model placing us on the forefront of innovative health care in the state with the goal of addressing some of the health care challenges faced by our community, state and nation. As stated by Lieutenant Governor Anthony G. Brown (Chair, Maryland Health Quality and Cost Council), “By establishing a Patient Centered Medical Home Program, we will begin to change how health care is delivered by focusing on the whole patient and improving access for the healthy and chronically ill. This program is a critical piece in making Maryland one of the healthiest states in the nation.”
Mountain Laurel Medical Center has chosen to dedicate significant efforts of our staff and providers to achieving full implementation of this concept and obtain National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) recognition as a Patient Centered Medical Home because we feel that it is a critical component of our goal to achieve the full potential of primary care to impact and optimize disease management and the overall health of our community and patients.
Regardless of insurance status and your ability to pay, Mountain Laurel Medical Center is committed to continuing to provide the same high quality health care to every patient.
