After implementing the Chronic Care Model, with its emphasis on patient self-management and innovations in care delivery, St. Peter Family Medicine has seen significant improvements in patient health and staff morale.
St. Peter Family Residency (SPFM) has spent nearly ten years in developing the residency clinic as a model of patient centered care. SPFM is now a central cultural influence of innovation within the broader medical group, collaborating directly with our other primary care practices as they move along the journey to the PCMH.
The Patient Centered Medical Home is a health care setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients, and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient’s family. Care is facilitated by registries, information technology, health information exchange and other means to assure that patients get the indicated care when and where they need and want it in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner.
