The Adirondack Medical Home Initiative (AMHI) is a collaborative effort by health care providers and public and private insurers to transform the health care delivery system in our rural upstate New York region. The goal is to ensure quality, accessible care while working to contain costs.
The initiative’s model places an emphasis on preventive care, enhanced management of chronic conditions, and the assurance of a close relationship between patients and their primary care providers.
The initiative serves six Adirondack counties in New York State – Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Warren, and Washington.
100+ primary care providers, five hospitals, and seven health insurance organizations are working together to develop an innovative, patient-centered model of health care that strengthens the role of primary care.
