Aspire is your Medical Home

The Patient Centered Medical Home is a health care setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients, their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient’s family. Care is facilitated by using information technology, health information exchange and other means to assure that patients get the indicated care when and where they need and want it in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner. Aspire became a Patient Centered Medical Home in January 2011.

As a PCMH Aspire is responsible for providing quality of care through the following means:

 1. Coordinated Care:   

It is extremely important that your primary care physician have the ability to receive reports from any sub-specialty physician office or other medical facility. We may ask you at your yearly physical or other appointments if you have received care from any other facility. We will then follow up with that facility to receive any pertinent information.

2. Evidence Based Medicine:  

Aspire providers follow published guidelines of the current best practices, based on research and date, to improve patient outcomes. 

3. Reminders for Care

You may be contacted by a member of our care team prior to your visit if a review of your medical record indicates you may need a certain diagnostic test, such as lab work.  Having the test results available to your physician at the time of your visit will provide your health care provider with results important to your treatment plan.

4. Case Management Services: 

Your health insurance may cover the services provided by a case manager who will assist you in managing a chronic or complex condition and offer assistance in activities of everyday life. Our medical team can provide you with further information should you or a family member involved in your treatment, feel this would be of benefit. 

5. Self-Management of Your Conditions:   

At the time of your visit, a medical assistant will provide with a clinical visit summary which outlines the care rendered to you.  A member of our medical team may provide you with patient educational materials or may refer you to an Internet Website to assist you with management of your condition.

6. Annual Examinations:

 Our clinical providers feel it is an important part of your care to have an annual examination and health assessment.   At the time of your physical, your physician will review your medical history and medications, (including over the counter medicines), do a complete physical examination, provide an assessment of your current conditions, and discuss a plan of treatment with you and a member of your family if so requested.
