Fairfield Community Health Center's (FCHC) goal is high quality, better care for our patients. We have been recognized as a level 3 (the highest rating) Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee on Quality Assurance for all of our family practice offices. PCMH means that we offer a team approach with the patient being the most important member of the team. FCHC offers improved access to care with extended hours, as well as the same and next-day appointments. We work with specialists and hospitals to coordinate care to be sure that the entire healthcare team is working together to assure the best possible health for our patients.
Our electronic medical record is central to a secure system that gives reminders to our providers of needed care and communicates your concerns to our providers. Our provider teams involve our patients in strategies for ongoing quality improvement to create a better care experience for the entire family.
A medical home takes both patients and providers working together for better health. By your sharing up to date information about:
• Your wellness conditions and concerns
• Your medications and how you are taking them
• Supplements, vitamins, other items you take for health
• Visits to other providers like specialists and emergency rooms
• Others you see for your health, like home nurses, chiropractors, therapists, herbalists, spiritual leaders etc.
• Important family or friends who help you with managing your health
• Your habits that affect health or your risk of illness (smoking, alcohol, substances)
• Your progress towards achieving your health goals
As FCHC works to ensure your health information is organized, reviewed, and checked against evidence-based guidelines, you contribute to keeping the information current and correct. We'll work together as a team to help ensure the best possible outcomes.
