What is PCMH?
PCMH is an active approach to establish a ''Medical Home'' for everyone--this means improved continuity of care! Your healthcare needs are coordinated by your individual medical provider who is leading a team of medical professionals providing continuous, comprehensive and personalized prevention based healthcare. WHY PCMH?
The key to PCMH and continuity of care is you shouldn't have to worry about seeing a different provider each time you visit the clinic. Every effort will be made to ensure you are cared for by the same pediatric health care team (technician, nurse & provider) every time you visit the clinic. Improved continuity means better medical management. If you are ever dissatisfied with your Primary Care Manager (PCM), please feel free to speak with an 18th MDG Tri-Care representative to discuss your options. We strive to meet all the medical needs through your ''Pediatric Medical Home''. OTHER IMPORTANT RESOURCES for our pediatric patients & families include: Also, please see the attachments below for further valuable health care advice/information, which can ensure your child's needs are met today!

We are leading the way in the Air Force because we are committed to providing you fast and convenient access to your pediatric healthcare team. Through effective communication and the building of continuous healing relationships you will receive the resources you need to care for your children.
