Patient and Family-Centered Care

The Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a team-based model built around the premise that the best health care begins with a strong primary care foundation.

PCMH improves the care our patients receive by offering enhanced access to care and increased Primary Care Manager continuity, and by promoting patient- and family-centered evidence-based health care. Patient Centered Medical Homes allow providers and patients to take a more proactive approach to health care, with a stronger focus on prevention. The medical home can reduce the percentage of specialty referrals and result in a PCMH team providing the needed care in one visit. The Patient Centered Medical Home model allows for better coordination of care and improved communication among team members and beneficiaries, while placing emphasis on preventive care and chronic care management, and empowering, patients to participate in their care plan.

How Do I Get Care?

There are multiple ways to receive care in the way that works best for you. We have learned from our experience and listening to you, that both face-to-face and non-face-to-face encounters (virtual care) are needed. Although some medical needs require an appointment, many things can be more conveniently coordinated using technology.
◾Face to face appointments: You can schedule an appointment for a same day issue or in the future with your Primary Care Manager. Although we want to maximize your appointments with your PCM, if you need to be seen during a time when your provider isn't available, we'll get you in to see one of the providers on your team.
◾TRICARE Online Patient Portal Secure Messaging allows you to directly contact your team through the web. Through this service, patients can initiate a web visit consultation, receive preventive care reminders, send a note to the provider’s office, request test results, and ask for prescription renewals. See your Medical Home team to get enrolled in secure messaging.
◾Tricare Online Allows you to schedule an appointment, review laboratory results, and view health education material.  ​
