Our Health Care Delivery Method consists of an integrated evidence-based care team delivery model (Patient Centered Medical Home Model).
Components include the following:
- Comprehensive Care
- Patient-Centered Care
- Coordinated Care
- Accessible Services
- Quality and Safety
Our Student Wellness Center model of care consists of a fully-integrated evidenced-based holistic approach that combines the skills of medical providers (physician and nurse practitioners), counselors, case managers, social workers, pharmacy services, advocates and other support staff to ensure high quality care. We encourage students to be self-responsible in their health care in an accessible model that is also affordable. Our primary goal is to promote health, prevent disease, and enhance student success and graduation.
To facilitate this approach, our Wellness Center has a comprehensive and integrated electronic health record (EHR) that is secure, readily available and shared among the team members. Team members create treatment plans with the student and communicate these within the team. The EHR and student portal allow communication with the student and participation and assessment of student and provider outcomes, which are key components in the Patient Centered Medical Home Model. The system also reduces health care costs by avoiding duplication of testing and/or services. We rely on our campus and community partners for referrals to specialty clinics and for continuity of care.
