YOUR HEALTH HOME, PLLC EARNS NATIONAL RECOGNITION FOR
NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home™ standards emphasize enhanced care through patient-clinician partnership
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) today announced that Your Health Home, PLLC with Robert D. Peterson, MD of Lake Havasu City, AZ has received NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition, Level 3, for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term, participative relationships. This is the first practice in Lake Havasu City to gain this highest level of recognition.
The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of primary care that combines teamwork and information technology to improve care, improve patients’ experience of care and reduce costs.
Medical homes foster ongoing partnerships between patients and their personal clinicians, instead of approaching care as the sum of episodic office visits. Each patient’s care is overseen by clinician-led care teams that coordinate treatment across the health care system. Research shows that medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patient and provider reported experiences of care.
“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 Dr. Peterson has the tools, systems and resources to provide his patients with the right care, at the right time.”
To earn recognition, which is valid for three years, Your Health Home, PLLC demonstrated the ability to meet the program’s key elements, embodying characteristics of the medical home. NCQA standards aligned with the joint principles of the Patient-Centered Medical Home established with the American
College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Osteopathic Association.
Congratulations! Your practice has earned NCQA PCMH Recognition again. One in six primary care physicians in America practices in an NCQA-Recognized practice. Your practice is among an elite group that has demonstrated its commitment to advancing quality in health care.
