MidMichigan Health Doctors' Offices Recognized For Patient-Centered Care

Three medical practices at MidMichigan Health have joined the growing list of primary care offices that have earned designation as Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) practices by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. Seventeen other MidMichigan Health offices were re-designated for the year 2014-2105.

“There are two main ways that PCMH is transforming health care into something more patient-centered,” explained Madhura Mansabdar, M.D., F.A.C.P., C.P.E., medical director for the MidMichigan Collaborative Care Organization.  “First, a good medical home will take ownership for coordinating all the care you need.  In addition to the prevention and treatment they offer directly, they also work to identify other services you need, including specialist visits, additional testing or home care. Other needs such as emotional, financial and social supports can also be addressed.”

“Secondly, these practices emphasize the things that make health care more convenient and satisfying for you. This may include extended hours, same-day appointments for urgent needs, a provider contact number for after-hours care, electronic tools for you to request appointments and prescription renewals, tools that help them track and notify you when you need certain tests or procedures, and easy access to services such as nutrition counseling, education or support groups.”
