What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH)?
The PCMH model has been adopted by many Great Lakes OSC practices to augment the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of health care, which is centered around the patient. Under this model, primary care physicians work with patients to establish and achieve personal health goals. Hallmarks of PCMH include improved preventative care, higher quality of care, and increased patient engagement in their own health. Due in large part to this model, patients belonging to PCMH-designated practices are avoiding emergency room visits and hospital stays. While the PCMH model is most notably seen in improving primary care, it also encourages coordination with specialist physicians.\
What is Great Lakes Organized Systems of Care (OSC)?
Great Lakes Organized Systems of Care (OSC) is a network of primary care and specialty physicians working to coordinate care across all settings for its patient population. Great Lakes OSC is currently comprised of approximately 51 primary care physicians and 105 specialists throughout the counties of Bay, Clinton, Gratiot, Isabella, and Midland. As is the case with most OSCs, Great Lakes OSC strives to streamline health care through a variety of channels including reducing the redundancy of tests and labs, encouraging improved coordination and integration of care, and adapting to the unique needs of the patient population. The end result is high quality, low cost care for our patients.
Great Lakes OSC is always trying to help member practices and providers improve, whether it be through improving quality, lowering costs, general consulting, or technical support. Through the member portal, users can access various reports and resources which are exclusive to GL OSC members and are restricted in access to only those parties involved.
