Patient Centered Medical Home
The Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of care in which each patient has an ongoing relationship with a personal clinician who leads a team that coordinates to take responsibility for patient care. The medical home seeks to strengthen the patient-clinician relationship by planning and coordinating care throughout a long-term healing relationship. The comprehensive care provided by the medical home leads to better health, longer lives, higher patient satisfaction and less expensive care.
The College’s faculty has been practicing in the patient-centered medical home since its inception. The pharmacist works in a collaborative relationship with the entire interprofessional team to optimize medications and chronic disease states and educate patients. Many of our faculty practice as pharmacist clinicians with an advanced scope of practice, including prescriptive authority.
Accredited in 2010, many of the university’s Patient-Centered Medical Homes are now recognized as Level 3.
