How Do I Get the Most from a Patient-Centered Medical Home?

  • Be in charge of your health and ask questions. Know that you are a full partner in your care.
  • Learn about your condition and what you can do to stay as healthy as possible.
  • Follow the plan, take medications as prescribed and keep scheduled appointments.
  • Communicate with your care team. Tell us when you don’t understand something we said or ask us to explain it in a different way. Tell us if you get care from other health professionals so we can help coordinate the best care possible. Bring a list of questions and a list of medicines or herbal supplements you take to every appointment. Tell us about any changes in your health or well-being.
