The achievement of Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) 2014 National Committee Quality Assurance (NCQA) Recognition – the Gold Standard for practice transformation — is a rigorous and time-consuming activity, sometimes taking over a full year of reporting and process/workflow transformation within a busy primary care office.
The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) signifies an approach to providing comprehensive primary care for children, youth and adults by facilitating partnerships between individual patients, and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient’s family.
The PCMH model facilitates create greater value for patients, providers and payers. As patients are given better access to coordinated care, many factors that drive up costs are impacted significantly including the increase of preventive services; improved immunization rates, decline in emergency department visits and in-patient hospitalizations, and overall decrease of health care costs.
The Millennium Primary Care Transformation Team is proud to recognize the following Western New York organizations who have achieved Patient Centered Medical Home Recognition:
GBUACO – Rapha Family Medicine
GBUACO – Winston Douglas, M.D.
GBUACO – Urban Family Practice
GBUACO – Heartbeat Center of WNY
