What is Patient Centered Medical Home?

Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)  is a program that Bland County Medical Clinic is using to improve primary care.  This program includes a set of standards that help provide better-organized care for our patients.

PCMH requires a parternership be made between our patients, their provider, and when appropriate, their family. Providing quality care will be achieved by using an extended team of health professionals to build a better relationship with our patients. Your team will include a provider, a nurse, a patient care coordinator and other healthcare professionals.

Your healthcare team will build this relationship, with you and your family, so that they are able to stay more informed about your medical history, family situations and healthcare issues. In turn, you come to trust and rely on them for expert health care answers.
