Patient Centered Medical Home

Patient-Centered Medical Home Model

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a key initiative for updating and improving existing care delivery models is. Its core principles -- clinical integration, care collaboration, patient access, and health data analytics -- are integral to RelayHealth solutions.

Hospitals and health systems interested in establishing PCMH must find solutions to reduce barriers to collaboration across a diverse medical community. They must also enhance access to care by electronically sharing clinical information, and providing secure messaging to communicate with providers. Simultaneously enabling providers and patients to communicate and collaborate around patient care is a core goal of PCMH, and is also the key technical hurdle to be overcome.

RelayHealth’s PCMH solution can help you:

  • Improve Care Coordination
    • Appropriate use of the HIE functionality would facilitate increased efficiency of care through optimized system resource utilization and reduced redundancy of care.
  • Increase Physician Outreach and Alignment
    • Align community providers with the health system by constructing efficient community wide HIE infrastructure
    • Coordinate practice improvement implementation to bolster loyalty and market presence in the community
    • Align community and system resources around an optimized foundation of primary care services
  • Streamline and Coordinate Workflow
    • Optimize workflows within practices around effective Team-Based Care principles
    • Align practice workflows with those of the healthcare system and community resources such as pharmacies
  • Make Quality Measurable and Actionable
  • Create a Patient-Centered Care Experience
    • Improve patient access to care through implementation of Advanced Access principles
    • Improve patient access to crucial, personal health information
    • Leverage technology to activate patients as a central part of the care team
