Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH)
According to the National Committee for Quality Assurance, “Patient-centered medical homes are transforming primary care practices into what patients want: a focus on patients themselves and their healthcare needs. PCMHs get to know patients in long-term partnerships, rather than through hurried, sporadic visits. They make treatment decisions with their patients, based on patient preference. They help patients become engaged in their own healthy behavior and health care. Everyone in the practice – from clinicians to front desk staff – works as a team to coordinate care from other providers and community resources.”
11 of our practices have already received Level 3 PCMH Recognition, the highest level. An additional 19 primary care practices are in the midst of this transformative effort and will apply for PCMH recognition within the next 6 months. Expanding our reach to affiliate locations and Specialty and Urgent Care locations will be part of our future.
