Patient-Centered Medical Home

NCQA

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model of care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into “what patients want it to be”.  These Patient Centered Medical Homes are practices who have demonstrated excellence in the provision of quality, timely, comprehensive care and care coordination from a compassionate team of health care professionals. Care Teams may consist of many individuals, from doctors and medical assistants to pharmacists and social workers. They may also encompass community resources, such as Elder Services or Wellness programs. Care is provided for the whole person, over time, in a manner recognizing that preventive care and the management of chronic conditions are essential contributions to optimal health outcomes. The Medical Home model embraces the patient and family as partners, setting goals and addressing barriers in a collaborative and caring manner.

Many MACIPA primary care practices have been awarded recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

NCQA PCMH Recognition is the most widely adopted model for transforming primary care practices into medical homes. Research confirms medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patients’ and providers’ experience of care.
