Your Medical Home

What is a 'Medical Home'?

It is our aim that patients see Tweed Health for Everyone Superclinic as their Medical Home. A Medical Home is an approach to patient care that utilises a team-based health care delivery model: putting patients and their families at the centre of all medical care.

This approach provides comprehensive and continuous medical care to patients with the goal of obtaining maximised health outcomes. We recognise that it is important that you feel empowered in your decisions for your own health.

For the patient this means:

  • Better access to healthcare
  • Increased satisfaction with care
  • Continuity of care
  • Improved health and wellbeing

How is a 'Medical Home' Different from a normal GP Clinic?

A Medical Home may differ from a normal general practice in a number of ways:

  • Quality improvement strategies
  • Engaged leadership within the practice
  • Linking patients with specific providers as needed, ensuring continuity of care
  • Organised, evidence-based care, including the use of decision support programs
  • Patients (and their families) highly involved in their own care
  • Enhanced access to care, meaning patients have access to care and their clinical information after office hours
  • Care coordination, meaning reduced duplication of services and cost
