Our providers are available and accessible 24/7 to meet the needs of our families. We have office locations in Smyrna,
Pleasant View, Thompson’s Station (Spring Hill) & Springfield. Our website offers a patient portal that allows our families to have access to their children’s health care
information, request appointments and make payments whenever it is convenient for them.
We understand that illnesses cannot be planned and sometimes the last minute sports physical has to be performed now. As your medical home, we offer same day
It is important that your children have a provider and environment that is welcoming and comforting to the entire family. We encourage you to come in and visit the
providers and staff and take a look around the office. If you are an expectant parent, or new to the area, schedule a provider interview and tour.
Since our opening in April 2010, we have focused on becoming recognized and certified with several core initiatives. Each year we incorporate more options for our families and
will continue as we grow.
Some of these initiatives are:
- Meaningful Use
- Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)
- Member of Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network (VHAN)
Our goal is to provide the highest quality, family-centered medical care to newborns through adolescence and to achieve optimum health for children. We strive to be on the cusp of new healthcare quality initiatives which raise the standard of care for children and families. We believe that the more organized and streamline we can be, the easier it is for our providers to focus on the most important aspect of why we are here – our patients.
Meaningful use is the use of certified electronic health records (EHR) technology. By using this technology we can improve quality, patient safety, and help reduce health disparities. It can help us engage patients and families with the use of a patient portal. The use of EHRs can improve care coordination and help maintain the privacy and security of health information.
Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)
The medical home model holds promise as a way to improve health care in America by transforming how primary care is
organized and delivered. The primary care medical home provides primary health care that is relationship-based with an orientation toward the whole person.
Partnering with patients and their families requires understanding and respecting each patient’s unique needs, culture, values, and preferences.
The medical home
practice actively supports patients in learning to manage and organize their own care at the level the patient chooses. Recognizing that patients and families are core
members of the care team, medical home practices ensure that they are fully informed partners in establishing care plans.
