Improving Health Outcomes

In keeping with strategies outlined in health care reform initiatives, Methodist Health System has implemented the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model of care. PCMH is a team-based model, led by a personal physician, who oversees the care process to provide maximum health outcomes for patients.

Healthy outcomes for patients are achieved by implementing the following:

  • Preventive services
  • Treatment of acute and chronic illness
  • Communication
  • Care coordination and integration
  • Self-management support  (involving patients in their health care goals)

The core of the concept is a holistic approach to health care, actively involving patients and their families in the health care process.

Health Coaches Team with Patients and Physicians

A key component of the medical home program is a Health Coach, who works with the patient and physician to oversee a patient’s care and achieve healthy outcomes.

See our Methodist Physicians Clinic Family Medicine and Internal Medicine locations who are improving care with the medical home concept.
