“We like to think in medicine that we’ve come a very long way from our ancestors who made house calls in their horse and buggy. The truth is that that was a very good way to deliver care. So we really do embrace that heritage of medicine, and with eClinicalWorks we’re using the latest and greatest software, truly cutting edge.”
Joanne Turner, Clinical Director, Mobile Physician Services
- Mobile Physician Services
- Size: 20+ medical professionals
- Location: All-mobile care delivery throughout Central Florida
- Specialty: Patient-Centered Medical Home care delivered in the home to predominantly age 60+ patients with multiple chronic medical conditions
- Active Patients: Thousands of patients in 20+ Florida counties
A 100% mobile care practice decided to seek Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition for its efforts in delivering care to chronically ill patients. As that process unfolded, Mobile Physician Services soon realized that its success throughout Central Florida might well serve as a national model.
Working closely with eClinicalWorks, Mobile Physician Services embarked upon a successful, two-and-a-half year effort to achieve Level 2 Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
The PCMH recognition process helped Mobile Physician Services maximize the value of their EHR and the tools and support eClinicalWorks offers, drawing attention as a potential national model for serving the needs of the chronically ill.
