Emerson IPA's Patient-Centered Medical Home--a team-based health care delivery model, which has been recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.

The Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of care that puts patients and families at the center of a care team. Medical home practices ensure that patients are fully informed partners in establishing care plans and includes the following areas of care:
  • Coordinated Care across all areas of the broader health care system, including screenings, specialty care, hospitals, home health care, and community services.
  • Care Management through the Integrated Care Management Program (iCMP) matches patients with a nurse, social worker, or community health care coordinator based on their unique needs. Whether it’s helping to arrange transportation, finding a home care nurse, or locating the appropriate behavioral health services, our Care Managers are there every step of the way.
  • Behavioral Health Support Specialist (BHSS) embedded in our practices as a resource for patients, serving as liaisons between the Primary Care team, the patient, and the consulting Psychiatrist or Therapist.
