At North Star Health, we are proud to be a certified patient centered medical home (PCMH). This designation means we provide evidence-based, comprehensive primary and preventive care with you, the patient, at the center of the care team, which includes health care providers, nurses, educators, counselors, and access to community programs.
The patient-centered medical home model is a way of organizing and delivering primary care that can lead to higher quality services, increased staff satisfaction and lower health care costs – and most importantly, can improve the patient experience.
The medical home encompasses five functions and attributes:
- Comprehensive Care
- Patient-Centered Care
- Coordinated Care
- Accessible Services
- Quality and Safety
