Patient Medical Home & Patient Care Network
Patient Medical Homes (PMHs): optimized, high quality longitudinal services provided in the context of an going relationship between patients and providers.
Primary Care Networks (PCNs): comprising the relationship between medical homes and the larger health care system, particularly the extended primary care system.
The GPSC goals are to:
- Increase patient access to appropriate, comprehensive, quality primary health care for each community.
- Improve support for patients, particularly vulnerable patients, through enhanced and simplified linkages between providers.
- Contribute to a more effective, efficient and sustainable health care system that will increase capacity and meet future patient needs.
- Retain and attract family doctors and teams working with them in healthy and vibrant work environments.
