Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Physically active centered medical home
by Manuel, Eric R., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 50; 1599186
Abstract (Summary)

Under the provision of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, the patient centered medical home is a model of primary care transformation that seeks to meet the variety of healthcare needs of patients and to improve patient and staff experiences, outcomes, safety, and system efficiency. Serving the medically underserved and primary care clinic shortage area of Long Beach, California, the Physically Active Centered Medical Home (PAC MH) will be a safe haven for healthy and physically active individuals who are required to avail of health insurance coverage as mandated by the Patient Protection and Accountable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA). PAC MH will offer comprehensive and integrated services that will keep its members healthy and away from the burden of repeated clinical visits. PAC MH understands that medical coverage is the least of the priorities for healthy adults. Hence, PAC MH’s payment system is made simple. The value-based care provided at PAC MH will reward the healthcare team for achieving and exceeding the pre-established benchmarks for quality care.
