Integrated Health at ANHC
The Anchorage Neighborhood Health Center is a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), certified by The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
The patient-centered medical home is a model of care that puts patients at the forefront of care, with treatment coordinated through their primary care provider to ensure they receive the necessary care when and where they need it, in a manner they can understand. A PCMH model of care builds better relationships between patients and their clinical care teams. Additionally, research shows that PCMHs improve quality and the patient experience, and increase staff satisfaction—while reducing health care costs. Additional onsite resources, such as lab, radiology, and pharmacy, further enhance this approach.
Patients can get high-quality, evidence-based care for their entire family at ANHC, including dental and medical services. Integrated care services include onsite care coordinators who work with the patient and provider to help manage internal and external referrals. Additional care team members may include a nurse case manager, dietitian, behavioral health provider, pharmacist, and members of specialty disciplines including obstetrics, psychiatry, HIV/AIDS, substance use disorder, nephrology, and cardiology.
There is also support available to patients outside of normal business hours, with an on-call provider available to provide urgent support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including weekends and holidays. Patients can get in touch with ANHC’s resources by calling the main line at 907-743-7200. Additional contact information for the organization can also be found at www.anhc.org.
In addition to primary care and follow-up visits and communication, ANHC also offers group interactions and classes on a variety of topics. Current offerings include: diabetes prevention, diabetes management, tobacco cessation, and group therapy for those dealing with addiction and past trauma.
