Patient-Centered Medical Home
Being a parent can be hard. There are so many decisions, options, and questions that arise with every stage of your child’s development. At Bright Future Pediatrics, we want to help you get your child started on the right path for their own bright future. We know that getting your child the care they need is about more than keeping their shots up to date. In fact, this only scratches the surface. Your child’s pediatrician should be fully equipped to treat the whole child, physically, mentally, and emotionally, and should partner with you to provide the best possible care for your family. Your child’s care should be tailored to their unique needs, and at Bright Future Pediatrics, one way we accomplish this through our Patient-Centered-Medical Home program.
Questions about the Baby
Patient-Centered Medical Homes are innovative systems designed to transform the way that primary care is done in America. Think of it as a hub for medical care where you can have all of your medical needs met in one place. Instead of seeing multiple doctors for various issues, Patient-Centered Medical Homes allow patients to have a comprehensive care team consisting of a variety of highly trained medical professionals that work together to provide their patients with the best and most complete care possible. A care team may consist of primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, mental health professionals, specialists, educators, nutritionists, and anyone else that you require for your individual needs. It allows doctors to be highly specialized according to your individual needs and to collaborate with a team of professionals to give you the care that you deserve.
Having just one hub and one team of doctors allows Patient-Centered Medical Homes to build unique relationships with their patients. Physicians get to know their patients’ needs, preferences, culture, and values which allows them to tailor their care to the uniqueness of each individual patient. Patients and families are seen as an integral part of their own care team and are given education and support in managing the day-to-day realities of their medical care needs. At Patient-Centered Medical Homes, your doctor knows you, spends time with you, understands your needs, and values your input.
Responsive Individualized Care
Another benefit of the Patient-Centered Medical Home model is that our patients have better access to their team of doctors whenever the need arises. We know that often, illness or emergency does not come during normal business hours. Patient-Centered Medical Homes offer a variety of avenues for reaching medical professionals, including shorter wait times for acute care needs, Telehealth options, and even the ability to email medical professionals for questions that don’t require an appointment. These options are especially beneficial for busy individuals and patients who have complex medical needs that may need attention more immediately.
At Bright Future Pediatrics, we see this model as the pinnacle of medical care and want to provide our patients and their families with the same type of highly individualized care. We know that your family is unique and we want to come alongside and support you in raising happy, healthy families. Preventive care, parent education, lactation consultation, and acute care are just some of the many services we offer to help your family thrive. We see you as integral members of our team and want to work with you to support your child through every stage of life, from those first days to their teen years. Your child is unique, and they should have medical care that sees and values this.
We know that you as parents have busy schedules and ever-changing needs. We use the Patient-Centered Medical Home model to get to know your preferences, needs, values, and culture so that we can support you in your medical decision-making as well. We seek to make going to the doctor as easy as possible, by providing Telehealth services, at-home visits for new mothers, and state-of-the-art facilities to keep your little ones healthy and safe.
At Bright Future, we created a clinic as mothers for mothers. We know what it is like to have a child and what it is like to be a mother, so you can rest assured that we will do all we can to care for your child. While you are busy making your home the best place possible for your family, we want our Patient-Centered Medical Home to be the best place possible for your family. We want your family to feel safe and confident that your doctors are listening to you, are there for you, and are working FOR you.
