Recognition As A Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home
September 25, 2013 | Categories:
The St. Barnabas Ambulatory Care Center has received a level 3 designation as a Patient-Centered Medical Home. As one of only a few facilities in the area to achieve level 3, St. Barnabas is proud of its progress in caring for patients under this new paradigm.
The medical home model focuses on the individual and involves an active partnership between the patient, the physician and a healthcare team. Members of the team may vary, depending on the patient’s needs. The medical home model manages the individual’s total healthcare and promotes continuity of care. Patients cared for in a patient-centered medical home have access to a clinician around the clock, seven days a week.
