Last summer, Alice Hyde Medical

Practices was recognized by the

National Committee for Quality

Assurance under the Patient-

Centered Medical Home

Program for using evidence-

based, patient-centered

processes that focus on highly

coordinated care and long-term

participative relationships.

The medical home is a new

concept for care that puts the

patient at the center of the

process. It emphasizes

coordinating care and

communication through a

primary care provider. Your medical

home is the centralized hub for all

of your care. It provides a new,

expanded type of care—

coordinating all your health care

needs, from helping you stay healthy

by reminding you of preventive

checkups and tests, to working with

you to manage chronic conditions,

visits to specialists, hospital

admissions and more. Research

shows that having a medical home

can lead to higher-quality care and

lower costs and improve patients’

and providers’ reported experiences

of care. The medical home is

Our patients stand at the center of

intended to result in more personalized,

coordinated, e ective and e cient care.

The Patient-Centered Medical Home

Program identifies practices that

promote partnerships between patients

and their personal clinicians.

Each patient’s care is

managed by clinician-led

teams that provide for all

the patient’s health care

needs and coordinate

treatments across the

health care system.

We are Alice.
