The Patient Centered Medical Home
The Patient Centered Medical Home is a care delivery model whereby patient treatment is coordinated through their physician to ensure they receive the necessary care when and where they need it, in a manner they can understand.
The objective is to have a centralized setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients, and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patientís family. Care is facilitated by registries, information technology, health information exchange and other means to assure that patients get the indicated care when and where they need and want it in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner.
Katherine L. Boyd, M.D. has been designated by The Physician Alliance as a Patient Centered Specialty Practice.
