MIHP introduces a novel delivery strategy for an inter-professional practice of medicine. It is designed to serve a range of patients in the out-of-hospital setting by providing 24/7 needs-based at-home integrated acute care, chronic care and prevention services.
The MIHP model is patient-centered, with an emphasis on ease of access to care, developing new non-traditional portals of entry, continuity of care and transparency. It is through the synergy of these attributes that care can be improved—safer, more timely, and of higher quality and satisfaction.
The MIHP strategy is designed to support and augment other patient-centered delivery models including the Patient Centered Medical Home, the Chronic Care Model and the Accountable Care Organization by providing an optimized mix of care, likely at costs lower than traditional models.
