Medical Home

Medical Home

The Patient's Medical Home (PMH) is a family practice defined by its patients as the place they feel most comfortable to discuss their personal and family health concerns.

 Most Albertans are part of a Medical Home which includes your family doctor along with a team of health care professionals. Building strong relationships with team members increases information sharing and enhances care coordination. 

When Albertans have a continuous, trusting relationship with a family doctor/nurse practitioner and team the benefits will include:

  • Increased access to appropriate care when it is needed
  • Better health
  • Better quality of care
  • Improved care coordination
  • Improved sharing of their information between care providers
  • Increased patient satisfaction
