Slide notes:Another characteristic of the patient-centered medical home is the concept of whole person orientation . This suggests that the personal physician is responsible for providing for all of the patients health care needs. The physician may seek assistance through consultation from other clinicians, if appropriate, but aims to provide care for the patient in all stages of life. Care is provided even in the acute, chronic, and end-of-life settings. Preventive services are emphasized and provided by the personal physician. 7
