PCMH - Patient Centered Medical Home
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) announced that Sisselman Medical Group has received recognition from the NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home 2011 (PCMH 2011) program for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term relationships.
The patient-centered medical home is a model of care emphasizing care coordination and communication to transform primary care into what patients want it to be. Research shows that medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patients' and providers' reported experiences of care. The NCQA PCMH Recognition program identifies practices that promote partnerships between individual patients and their personal clinicians, rather than treating patient care as the sum of episodic office visits. Each patient's care is delivered by clinician-led care teams that provide all health care needs and coordinate treatments across the health care system. Medical home clinicians demonstrate the benchmarks of patient-centered care, including open scheduling, expanded hours and appropriate use of proven health information systems.
