NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home™ standards emphasize enhanced care through patient-clinician partnership

WASHINGTON, DC—The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) announced that Martin’s Point Health Care has received the highest level of NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition.

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model of care that puts patients at the forefront of their care. PCMHs build better relationships between patients and their health care teams. Research shows they improve quality, the patient experience, and staff satisfaction, while reducing health care costs.

NCQA’s Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition Program is the most widely adopted Patient-Centered Medical Home evaluation program in the country. More than 12,000 practices (with more than 60,000 clinicians) are recognized by NCQA. Recognized practices have made a commitment to quality improvement and a patient-centered approach to care that results in patients who are happier and healthier.

“NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition… emphasizes access to care, health information technology, and coordinated care focused on patients,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Recognition shows that Martin’s Point Health Care has the tools, systems, and resources to provide its patients with the right care at the right time.”
