Patient-Centered Medical Home
Women’s Primary Care is proud to be a Level 3 patient-centered medical home (PCMH). The medical home model aims to meet patient’s individual health needs by providing comprehensive, coordinated and accessible care that is focused on quality and safety. This team-based care model involves patients, primary care providers, medical assistants, patient service representatives and the nurse care manager. Our nurse care manager, Jennifer Nappi, RN, CDOE, plays a critical role in the process. The nurse care manager’s assistance is always optional and at no cost to you or your family.
Patient and Family Advisory Council
Our Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) serves as the voice of patients and families to assist Women’s Medicine Collaborative in providing care that exceeds expectations and promotes Lifespan’s mission of delivering health with care.
Our PFAC provides a forum for ongoing communication and feedback regarding the quality of services provided. Council members share their health care experiences from the patient’s point of view and help us to identify opportunities for improvement.
