Social Determinants of Health

 
Northland Family Care is truly passionate about caring for our patients. In recent months you may have seen news or magazine articles about Social Determinants of Health or Health Equity, but this is not new. Studies about the effect of one’s social situation related to their health began 20 years ago. Most of the recent studies indicate that 15 – 20% of overall health outcomes are directly related to a person’s social situation. Another study indicates that over 60% of US patients experience some effect on health outcomes based on their social situations.

In order to best care for our patients, we are asking you to answer the following. We thank you in advance for completing this short questionnaire.

Do you feel safe physically or emotionally where you currently live?



Stress is when someone feels tense, nervous, anxious, or can’t sleep at night because their mind is troubled. How stressed are you?

Welcome to Your Patient-Centered Medical Home

 
Northland Family Care's PCMH Philosophy: Providing care that is respectful of and responsive to the individual patient preferences, needs and values, ensuring that patient values guide our clinical decisions.

Patient-Centered is a way of saying that you, the patient, are the most important person in the health care system. You are the center of your healthcare.

A Medical Home is an approach that yields both better healthcare care and lower costs. With your Medical Home, you are joining a team that provides centralized, comprehensive, coordinated primary evidence based care and cultivates partnerships between patients, their personal physicians, the care giving team, and the patient's family.

A Patient-Centered Medical Home is a Partnership between the patient and their physician.
 
Being a part of a PCMH, your doctor will:
  • Work with you to improve your health
  • Review your medications at every visit and discuss with you any interactions or contraindications
  • Develop a personal action plan with you to address your chronic conditions
  • Set goals with you and monitor your progress
  • Use computer technology to monitor your progress and determine if your health is improving
  • Inform you of all test results
  • Help you take control of your health by providing you educational material, hosting group visits and linking you to other community programs and resources
  • Provide you 24-hour access to a clinical decision-maker by phone
  • Have arrangements with after-hours care to be informed of your visit or emergent treatment within 24 hours or next business day
  • Reserve space in our schedule for you to accommodate a same-day appointment
  • Refer you to available community resources when the need arises
  • Update your medical, family, social and medication history during office visits
  • Offer self-management and behavioral health support
 
By choosing to participate in a PCMH, YOU (the patient) agrees to:
  • Provide my doctor with my entire medical history
  • Tell my doctor all of the medications I am taking
  • Actively participate with my doctor in planning my care
  • Keep my appointments as scheduled
  • Adhere to the action plan designed by my doctors
  • Consult my doctor before making my own appointment with a specialist
  • Request that any other doctor I see, send my doctor a report including copies of lab work, test results, and any x-rays
  • Know my insurance and what it covers
  • Provide the office feedback on how they can improve

Patient-Centered Medical Home Patient Compact

 
A Patient Centered Medical Home is a trusting partnership between a doctor-led healthcare team and an informed patient. It includes an agreement between the doctor and the patient that acknowledges the roll of each in the total healthcare program.

We trust you, our patient to:
  • Tell us what you know about your health and illnesses
  • Tell us about your needs and concerns
  • Take part in planning your care
  • Follow the care plan that is agreed upon, or let us know why you cannot so we can try to help and change the plan
  • Tell us what medications you are taking and ask for refill at your office visit when you need one
  • Let us know when you see other doctors and what medications they put you on or change
  • Ask others to send us a report about your care when you see them
  • Learn about your insurance so you know what it covers
  • Keep your appointment as scheduled, or call and let us know you cannot at least 24 hours in advance
  • Pay your share of the visit fee when you are seen in the office
  • Give us feedback so we can improve our service
As we build your Medical Home you will notice some changes in the way we provide care, but many things will stay the same. We will continue to:
  • Provide you with your own doctor who knows you and your family whenever he/she is available
  • Respect you as an individual – we will not make judgments based on race, religion, sex or disability
  • Respect your privacy – your medical information will not be shared with anyone unless you give us written
  • permission or it is required by law
  • Provider care given by a team of people led by your doctor
  • Give the care you need when you need it
  • Give the care that meets your needs and fits with your goals and values
  • Give care that is based on quality and safety
  • Have a doctor on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Take care of short illness, long-term disease and give advice to help you stay healthy
  • Tell you about your health and illness in a way you can understand
Over the next several months, you may notice that:
  • We ask what your health care goal is, or what you want to do to improve your health
  • We use current best evidence in decision making about your care and offer support for self-management of your health and healthcare
  • We ask you to help us plan your care, and let us know if you think you can follow the plan
  • We will give you a written copy of the care plan
  • The team care members are doing more and/or different parts of the care
  • We remind you when tests are due so you can receive the best quality care

  • We may offer you a chance to join in a special type of doctors visit called a "group visit"
  • We continue to increase the use of technology in the way we manage your healthcare in ways such as ePrescriptions, evisits, and online bill pay
As part of our Patient Centered Medical Home orientation, we will ask you to acknowledge your agreement to the above, and we will acknowledge our agreement to you.

Either you or your doctor may end this partnership at any time. If you choose to end the partnership, pleose notify us and tell us why.
