Patient Centered Medical Home

The Patient Centered Medical Home is a new and innovative way of providing primary care services. The goal is better care for you, our patient. It builds on the personal relationship that you already have with your trusted physician or nurse practitioner. It includes the following:

Team Approach.

An expanded team of people is focused on your individual health care needs and your preferences about how that care is delivered. Our physicians, nurse practitioners, Clinical Care Assistants, Care Managers, Dietitian and Health Coach work together to make sure that you get the right care at the right time.

Improved Access.

Same and next day appointments, telephone care, evening office hours, after hours phone access, and secure email communication with your provider makes it easier for you to get what you need.

Electronic Health Record.

Technology gives you and your team reminders about needed care and helps monitor changes in your health over time. Your secure access to that health record allows you and your team to communicate more easily about matters that concern you.

Health Coaching and Information.

Extensive educational resources, coaching, and self management support will assist you in achieving your health goals, including wellness, diabetes, cardiac care, and smoking cessation.

Coordination of Care.

We work closely with trusted specialists and hospitals and coordinate your care to make sure that all of us are working together to assure your best health.

COVID-19 Vaccine

We are sorry to inform you that, although we had originally planned to partner with Centennial Pharmacy Services to administer the COVID 19 vaccine shots in our office, we will be unable to
do so.

We realize that this is disappointing to many of you, as we were hoping to make it easy for our patients to obtain the vaccine. However, the Philadelphia Health Department has decided to not distribute COVID Vaccine through physician offices but to focus instead on retail pharmacies, large mega-sites, collaborative arrangements with community groups, places of worship and large hospital systems.

We recommend that you go to the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Philadelphia Health department websites as well as those neighborhood pharmacies to find a vaccination location near you to schedule your shot. See the links below. If you are physically unable to leave your home, call our office and we can help you arrange to have a nurse come to your home to administer the vaccine.

Please be sure to let us know when you’ve been fully vaccinated and we will update your health record.

WE URGE ALL OF OUR PATIENTS TO GET THE VACCINE. If you have any concerns about the safety, effectiveness, rapidity of development or other issues regarding the COVID vaccines, please contact your primary care provider at NSIM.

Please be sure to let us know when you’ve been fully vaccinated and we will update your health record. Once you have been vaccinated, please follow the CDC guidelines to fully protect yourself and others.

Please be patient. No one will be truly safe until everyone in our country who desires the vaccine has received it.  Please continue to wear your mask when outside of your home, maintain social distance, wash your hands, and follow other guidelines from the health department and CDC. Once you receive the vaccine, you will need to strictly maintain these precautions at all times until our public health officials tell us otherwise.

Wishing you good health,

The NSIM and MDVIP physicians, Nurse practitioners, and Staff
