We are excited to announce that we have earned a National recognition in Patient-Centered -Medical Home (PCMH) with a Distinction in Behavioral Health Integration (BHI) given by The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). Those recognitions are highly regarded at national level as a warranty of good quality service for patients in their medical home. The NCQA Recognition highlights our practice as one that is medically evidence-based in order to deliver our medical care and work to improve our quality of service. PCMH is a model where patient-centered protocols are created and implemented, facilitating the teamwork on the discussion and decision-making processes for each patient. PCMH also integrates information technology to improve our quality of care , customer service, medical decision-making, continuity of care, more personalized care, health education and lower healthcare costs. As a PCMH center, we help to coordinate patient care with other health care systems, such as hospitals and urgent cares.
The BIH distinction is part of our PCMH goal to provide our patients with the best mental health and primary care services with high-quality of care coordination under the same roof. We have external support to coordinate mental health at our primary care clinic. This model is key to enhancing the health and wellbeing of children and adolescents, and to strengthen our provider-patient relationship. We are very proud of our work to achieve this milestone and look forwarded to continue serving our community in a new and improved way.
