NCQA- Patient-Centered Medical Home
Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition
Tri-Area Community Health was adopted as a Patient-Centered Medical Home in 2013 and was recently recertified in December of 2020. The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home program reflects the input of the American College of Physicians (ACP), American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and others. It was developed to assess whether clinician practices are functioning as medical homes and recognize them for these efforts. The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home standards emphasize the use of systematic, patient-centered, coordinated care that supports access, communication and patient involvement.
“NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition raises the bar in defining high-quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology and coordinated care focused on patients,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Recognition shows that Tri-Area Community Health has the tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time.”
