Integrated Care and Patient-Centered Medical Home

Lynn Community Health Center’s “Ideal Care” model is based on the belief that Primary Care is more than the control or absence of physical illness.

Our vision is to promote and support the overall health and wellbeing for all of our patients.

To this end, each one of our primary care teams includes behavioral health providers, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, social workers, educators, and care coordinators. Your providers work together to ensure that you get the best care possible.

Lynn Community Health Center is committed to creating a Patient Centered Medical Home for you. A medical home is not a building, house, or hospital, but rather an approach to providing comprehensive health care. A medical home is called a “home” because we’d like to be the first place you think of for all your medical needs. Our goal is to make it easy and comfortable to get the care you need in a way that works best for you.
Your medical home team consists of your primary care provider, a dedicated team of healthcare professionals, and most importantly, you and your family. As a crucial member of the team, you will be involved in decisions about your health and health care. Your primary care provider will work with you to coordinate your care across the health care system.

The 5 Key Elements of a Patient-Centered Medical Home:

Patient-centered

It is relationship-based, focusing on the whole person. Your provider will respect your unique needs, culture, values, and preferences. We recognize that you and your family are important members of your health care team, and will help you learn to manage your own care.

Comprehensive care

We are committed to meeting all your physical and behavioral health needs including prevention and wellness, acute care, and chronic care. Your care team works together to ensure the best care possible. This team might include physicians, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, social workers, educators, and care coordinators.

Coordinated care

Your team will coordinate your care across all elements of the broader health care system, including specialty care, hospitals, home health care, and community services and supports.

Improved access to your Primary Care Team

Our goal is to be as responsive to your medical needs as possible.

Continuous Improvement

We are committed to ongoing measurement of our progress in improved treatment outcomes and excellent service to you, our patients.
