This is the Preferred Method of communicating with the provider.

Active Duty Personnel will report to the Cardinal/Swan Team during sick call hours to receive a same day appointment with a Department of Family Medicine provider. Appointments are on a first come first served basis. Sick Call appointments cannot be made over the phone or by the appointment line; appointments are made face-to-face only. All Service members will sign their name in the SICK CALL Record book to verify date, time, and presence. (Please note that traditional sick call is not utilized at the Department of Family Medicine.)

Medication Renewal Request

*Preferred Method* Utilize the MHS Genesis Patient Portal to request medication renewals from your provider. Include the medication name(s) in your message.

*Alternate Method* Call the Clinic Nurse Line at 253-968-0770 and leave a detailed message, including your name, date of birth and DoD ID #, and the medication you wish to refill.

About

Madigan’s Patient Centered Medical Home Primary Care Clinics are Army Medical Homes with an interdisciplinary approach to delivering evidence-based, comprehensive primary care– coordinating care delivered outside of the primary care setting and proactively engaging patients as partners in health.

The Army Medical Home is designed around one core principle: putting patients first. The Army Medical Home is Army Medicine’s gateway to influence the “life space” where patients make decisions on the key determinants of health and wellness–sleep, activity, and nutrition (that is, the Performance Triad).

Each patient will partner with a team of healthcare providers – physicians, nurses, behavioral health, clinical pharmacists, physical therapy and case management professionals to develop a comprehensive, personal healthcare plan. This team will form a partnership with you to provide improved access, coordinate needed services, answer your questions, and ensure that you get the care you need. Your Medical Home team will remain the same as long as they continue to work within your medical home. This will improve your continuity of care and allow you to develop a closer partnership with your team. The Army Medical Home model has been shown to improve patients’ overall health, resulting in fewer emergency and urgent care visits, decreased hospital admissions, shorter inpatient stays and fewer inpatient readmissions among other positive results.

To transition from a “healthcare system” to a System for Health, moving away from episodic care to a standardized, long-term model that achieves optimal health outcomes. The Army Medical Home model will facilitate the transformation to a System for Health and be the primary care means for providing patient-centered comprehensive care to patients. The desired end state is for all patients to receive coordinated, comprehensive care guided by the Army Medical Home. Key to this coordination is improved communication using face-to-face and technological methods such as MHS GENESIS Patient Portal and the Nurse Advise Line, strengthened by a firm patient-provider relationship.
