Greater Baltimore Medical Center seems to be setting the standard for providing quality primary care during industry upheaval, reports The Baltimore Sun.
Its “comprehensive medical teams that include physicians, nurses, advanced practitioners, nurse care managers and care coordinators are available for extended hours on weekdays and weekends and are always connected to up-to-the-minute patient data through an electronic health record system,” the paper reports.
“Because the offices are interconnected, a patient can go to any of its sites, regardless of where their regular primary-care physician is located. The patient’s test results and other critical information are also available through any of the locations….”
“What’s more, all offices are recognized as Level 3 patient-centered medical homes by the National Committee for Quality Assurance, the highest designation available. And through a Web-based tool known as myGBMC, patients have 24-hour online access to their electronic health records. Using myGBMC, patients can also securely request prescription refills, look up test results, communicate electronically with their caregivers and request referrals to see specialists.”
