More than ever before, Americans are interested in an integrative treatment approach to their medical care that promotes overall health, while also preventing and treating disease. Family medicine physicians and integrative health practitioners collaborate to serve patients in the most holistic way.
The Patient-Centered, Team-Based Medical Home Model
To create a legacy of truly integrated care, professional staff members must be organized into teams that support each individual patient. This important collaboration brings the patient into a centralized decision-making role, while also provides comprehensive support. In the Primary Care Medical Home, comprehensive support includes secure access to medical records, open and active communication with physicians and team members, and access to full coordination of care including any referred specialists and services.
