NCQA recognizes primary care practices

Jay FitzOur Town Health

Twenty-four primary care practices of Covenant Medical Group (CMG) have been awarded recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home Program. The recognition was developed to assess whether clinician practices are functioning as medical homes and recognize them for these efforts.

The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home standards emphasize the use of systematic, patient-centered, coordinated care that supports access, communication and patient involvement. CMG clinics with Patient-Centered Medical Home recognitions offer patients quality care and focus on continuous improvement. The clinics are committed to putting patients first to help build better relationships between primary care physicians, staff and patients; improving quality of care and improving the patient experience.

“This recognition demonstrates our commitment to high quality patient-centered care,” said Stephanie Nichols, director of clinical services and quality initiatives for CMG. “Covenant Medical Group is very proud of our NCQA-recognized Patient Centered Medical Home clinics and we look forward to continuing to provide positive patient experiences and improved patient outcomes.”

The CMG clinics offer complete care coordination with same-day appointments, after-hours availability, evidence-based care, physician referrals for specialized care, a secure patient portal and the ability to access online health information. Info here.
