    Six Principles of PCMH
    - Personal physician
    - Whole person orientation
    - Coordination of care across settings
    - Quality & Safety
    - Access
    - Payment structure

    University Medical Associates is PCMH certified and Family Medicine is working toward certification.
    The program’s six standards align with the core components of primary care and with Medical School education:
    PCMH 1: Enhance Access and Continuity
    PCMH 2: Identify and Manage Patient Populations
    PCMH 3: Plan and Manage Care
    PCMH 4: Provide Self-Care and Community Support
    PCMH 5: Track and Coordinate Care
    PCMH 6: Measure and Improve Performance

    -  longitudinal experience in Patient Centered Medical Homes
    -  longitudinal relationships with patients (telephone; e- mail; accompany to visit, tweet)   also stroke clinic, Family Medicine, HIV Clinic, CHF Clinic, other longitudinal care venues

    Environment concerns and interprofessional working relationships are important aspects of PCMH.
