Healthcare software company Cielo MedSolutions announces president and CEO David Morin will deliver an invited presentation at the Annual Health Futures Conference on Thursday, May 1, 2008 in Dearborn, Michigan. The theme of the event, hosted by the Greater Detroit Area Health Council (GDAHC), is primary care/physician office transformation and the concept of the medical home and its impact on quality, access and cost. Mr. Morin’s talk will focus on the role of systems and technology in the patient-centered medical home.
The nation’s leading medical groups, including the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), have come together to promote a proven model in health care delivery: the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PC-MH). In this model, the traditional doctor’s office is transformed into the central point for patients to organize and coordinate their health care, based on their needs and priorities.
At its core of the medical home is an ongoing partnership between each person and a specially-trained primary care physician. This new model provides modern conveniences, such as email communication and same-day appointments; quality ratings and pricing information; and secure online tools to help consumers manage their health information, review the latest medical findings and make informed decisions. Consumers receive reminders about necessary appointments and screenings, as well as other support to help them and their families manage chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease.
“Many of the outlined patient-centered medical home features are already a reality with our clinical quality management system, Cielo Clinic™,” said David Morin. “Primary care physicians currently using Cielo Clinic provide improved patient communication and enhanced chronic disease management.”
