Summary of Affinity’s Journey
We began our medical home journey by introducing the concept to two of our primary care clinics in Kaukauna and Oshkosh in early 2009. Driven by the Affinity promise of delivering personalized care to our patients, the medical home model is now being rolled out to all of our primary care clinics.
The care team at the Affinity Medical Home consists of providers partnered with nurse practitioners or physician assistants, nurse specialists who coordinate ongoing health needs, behavioral health providers, patient service representatives and health care associates such as LPN or certified medical assistants. Other specialties, such as OBGYN or integrative medicine, may also be incorporated into the medical home model.
