Our Model: Patient Centered Medical Homes
HMPCG advocates a team-based, collaborative patient care model: the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH). With patients and their families at the center of the Medical Home, our primary care physicians lead the coordinated effort to manage patients’ health and wellness. This inclusive, patient-centered approach encourages patients to be involved in both their care planning and delivery. Medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve both patients’ and providers’ experience in care.
National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition is the most widely-used pathway to transform primary care practices into Medical Homes. Recognition is obtained through submission of a complex application and is based on six standards:
• Patient-Centered Access
• Team-Based Care
• Population Health Management
• Care Management and Support
• Care Coordination and Care Transitions
• Performance Measurement and Quality Improvement
HMPCG has 4 practices who have been awarded Level 3 recognition, the highest recognition possible.
