What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?
A Patient-Centered Medical Home is a care delivery model that is patient-centered, comprehensive, team-based, coordinated, accessible, and focused on quality and safety. The medical home team at Health First has a goal to be your partner in healthcare by serving as your medical home. At Health First, we partner with hospitals, medical clinics, specialists, testing facilities, pharmacies and other places. Wherever your journey takes you, your Health First team will help guide the way and coordinate your care.
It’s Not a Place — It’s a Partnership!
Health First puts you at the center of your care, working with you to create personalized plans to meet your goals. We are focused on getting to know you and earning your trust. Technology makes it easy to get healthcare when and how you need it whether it be by e-mail, after-hour phone calls, mobile apps or electronic resources.
