Healthcare in 3D Terms and Phrases

Patient
Individual Provider Acts upon.
Patient Centered Medical Home
Is a methodology to provide primary comprehensive patient centered care, where a single physician or “medical home” is responsible for coordinating the patients care throughout the patient journey. In the context of HCn3D it is the observation and influence the medical home is accountable for across all network entities providing care.
Patient Centered Network
Hierarchal network where the lowest level is centered at the patient (Patient > Provider > Provider Group or Association > Network Neighborhood > Plan > Region > CMS and multistate insurance plans > Population).
Patient Centering
Positioning the cube at the patient level. Specifically the inflection point where the provider action is decided. At this lowest level, centering is on this single point along a patient’s care path.
Patient Journey
The patient’s care path through the network entities.
