WHAT IS MEDICAL HOME PORT?
Primary care services at U. S. Naval Hospital Okinawa and its branch medical clinics are configured as a standardized primary care team model. By standardizing primary care services and enhancing access and continuity, we improve the partnership between the patient, the primary care provider and primary care team, and the patient's family. That partnership focuses on sustaining and enhancing wellness in our patients as well as efficient delivery of comprehensive health care services, based on the needs of our patients. This effort aligns with civilian models of enhanced primary care known as Patient- Centered Medical Home (PCMH). In Navy Medicine, PCMH is known as your "Medical Home Port."
Medical Home Port is team-based and beneficiaries have an entire team responsible for their healthcare. Along with the Primary Care Manager (PCM), they have a Registered Nurse (RN), Hospital Corpsman and civilian support staff assigned as part of the healthcare team.
