The Health Home (or Patient Centered Medical Home) is a new approach to patient care. Its goal is to treat the whole patient by integrating primary and behavioral care. Complex patients may receive treatment through multiple sources of care – from physicians and hospitals, to community health centers and home care – Health Homes coordinate care amongst these providers (the Care Team).
TREAT boasts an inventory of multidisciplinary assessments, a suite of tools designed specifically for behavioral health care, a variety of primary health care treatment tools, as well as modules designed specifically to address issues of comorbidity and complex patients. TREAT can effectively be used as a stand-alone Health Home solution, or select modules can be implemented as individual components of an electronic Health Home system thanks to its modular design.
TREAT is incorporated as an application in the GSIHealth Coordinator Dashboard for Health Homes in NY State and seamlessly integrates with Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) to ensure continuity of care.
