Patient-Centered Medical Home

In 2016, SHS achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).  In addition, SHS is also accredited as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH). To be considered a PCMH, the center must have an added focus on accessible, comprehensive, and continuous care designed to meet the needs of the patients served. 

At the time of accreditation, SHS was just the sixteenth college health center in the nation accredited as a PCMH by AAAHC. Only approximately 200 college health centers nationwide are accredited by AAAHC.   Within Nebraska, SHS is the only college health center accredited by AAAHC. 

What can you expect?

Your care team is focused on getting to know you.  We care about you while caring for you.

In a medical home, you and your team will work together.  As an active member of the team, you will have a chance to explain the things that are really important to you.

  • Your team can answer questions and help you better understand your healthcare needs.
  • If you need to get help from specialists, your team can support you every step of the way.
  • When you have concerns about your health, your medical home team will work with you to determine the way to deal with them.

Together, you and your team can work on a plan that:

  • Is personalized or created just for you
  • Is coordinated with other healthcare providers
  • Connects you with your healthcare team

What can you do to help?

Be an active team player

  • Talk with your team about your health questions
  • Share your past healthcare successes and challenges
  • Tell your team about other healthcare professionals who care for you
  • Tell your team how you feel about the care you are getting from them

Take care of your health

  • Follow the health care plan you and your team have talked about.  Make sure you understand how to follow the plan. Set goals you can reach. Once you begin to see results, you and your team can discuss adding new goals.

Talk openly with your team

  • Tell your team if you are having trouble sticking with your care plan.
  • Speak up if your care plan is not working.  Tell your team what is not working so together you can make changes if needed.

A medical home is not a place; it is a partnership between the patient and the medical provider.
