Carlisle Pediatric Associates has achieved the highest level of quality recognition for a Patient Centered Medical Home Level 3! (Awarded by the National Committee for Quality Assurance)
The PCMH concept is a model of health care that strengthens the physician-patient relationship by replacing episodic care with coordinated care and a long-term health-care relationship. Each patient has an ongoing relationship with a personal physician who leads a team at a single location that takes collective responsibility for patient care, providing for the patient’s health care needs and arranging for appropriate care with other qualified clinicians. You will choose a primary physician, who will be your child's caregiver whenever they are available in the office. The medical home is intended to result in more personalized, coordinated, effective and efficient care by providing patients and families access to evidence-based care and self-management support.
PCMH works by delivering primary care that is oriented towards the whole person. This can be achieved by partnering with patients and families through an understanding of and respect for culture, unique needs, preferences, and values.
The PCMH coordinates patient care across all elements of the health care system, such as specialty care, hospitals, home health care, and community services, with an emphasis on efficient care transitions. Accordingly, it is very important that you take the time to fill out your family history and patient information sheets as completely and accurately as possible. One innovation that will make this easier is by accessing your patient medical history form on this web site, which allows you time to fill it out at home when it is more convenient for you. You can also send us a message with any changes and/or additions to your information via our new Patient Portal.
BEST WISHES to Dr. Qingru Wang, as she moves to California to join her husband and begins a new practice. We will miss you!
