Rochester, Mich. – Oct. 14, 2016 – MedNetOne Health Solutions (MedNetOne), a health care management organization offering infrastructure, clinical and technology services to more than 800 private practice physicians and other independent care providers, announced 54 physicians/physician practices have been selected as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) designated practice by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan(BCBSM). The PCMH model is founded on the central patient/physician relationship, with the primary care physician’s office serving as the patient’s “medical home” and the primary care physician’s team coordinating all of a patient’s medical care to improve patient health and outcomes.
MedNetOne Chief Medical Officer Al Juocys, D.O., whose own practice, Rochester-based County Creek Family Practice, has been designated as a PCMH for several years, notes that MedNetOne member physicians have received the PCMH designation because of a deeply held commitment to the principles of patient-centric care.
“The overwhelming majority of MedNetOne physician members run solo or small practices and rely on the infrastructure and care management support that MedNetOne membership provides,” Dr. Juocys said. “We are pleased to work in partnership with these dedicated physicians to help them attain and continue their PCMH designation with the broader goal of providing optimal, coordinated care to their patients.”
Dr. Juocys continued that MedNetOne’s increased focus on care management, using a patient-centered, multi-disciplinary team comprised of registered nurses, pharmacists, dieticians and behavioral health specialists that coordinate care and services to better manage chronic conditions, has multiple benefits.
“Care management encompasses a variety of services that enhance quality care and satisfaction for patients and caregivers and also contribute to overall cost reductions in care,” Dr. Juocys said. “With MedNetOne’s focus on the team-based approach to care management, our physician members offer their patients specialized care to best treat specific chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension.”
