Northwest Medical Homes is an independent Family Medicine primary care practice in the Eugene/Springfield area of Oregon. We have 3 outpatient clinics with 25 providers including integrated behavioral health providers and clinical pharmacists. The pharmacy department includes an anticoagulation clinic, a transition of care team, and an AWV/quality team. The PGY2 Ambulatory care residency program focuses on building a sustainable integrated ambulatory care practice in addition to advancing the provision of team-based care. Learning experiences include Ambulatory Care, Lane County Health and Human Services (a FQHC), Population Health, Teaching, Research and Scholarly Activity, Leadership, and Business Development. This program emphasizes direct patient care with in person and telehealth visits, telephonic disease state management, provision of Medication Therapy Management (MTM) and Annual Wellness Visits (AWVs). At the end of this year, residents will have the knowledge and skills to be able to start their own ambulatory care practice as part of a primary care team.
Springfield Family Physicians was founded more than 30 years ago by one of the first female family physicians in the county and has been pioneering the best ways to care for patients ever since. In the past 10 years, we have grown from one location and 10 family physicians, serving about 10,000 people, to 3 locations and 25 providers serving more than 25,000 people in the Eugene/Springfield area. We have been dedicated to transforming the delivery of primary care through a team-based approach for quite some time. We recently changed our name to Northwest Medical Homes since we opened a clinic in Eugene.
Nine years ago, we were one of the first in our area to embed behavioral health providers. Three years ago, we added clinical pharmacy and discovered the many ways pharmacists helped us improve clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction. We are proud to have been the first clinic in our county to achieve the highest state designation as a “Patient Centered Primary Care Home” and continue to work with OHSU and others to ensure that we are always striving to improve how we partner with our patients. We are dedicated to the goals of the Triple Aim (Better care, better patient experi...ence and lowered overall cost). We have learned that we can only accomplish these goals through the work of an expanded and motivated healthcare team, and we are always looking for the right people to partner with us in that pursuit.
