Patient-Centered Medical Homes are the future of America’s healthcare; this model of care focuses on proactive, preventive primary care where the Primary Care Provider (PCP) serves as a medical “home” for their patients. The patient-centered medical home builds a lifetime relationship that is patient-focused and coordinated across the entire healthcare system.
The Primary Care Providers and their teams build a close personal relationship with patients and get to know the whole person. The Patient-Centered Medical Home encourages patients to participate in their healthcare decisions and treatment plans with the understanding that they are the driver of their care. Family and community plays a very important role in developing care plans for patients as well. The goal at Desert Senita is to effectively treat and manage conditions before they become serious problems. The Medical Home framework provides continuous overall care that integrates prevention, wellness, and arranges care with qualified specialists when needed.
