Medical Home Concept and Accreditation
What’s a Patient-Centered Medical Home?
Per the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), a Patient Centered Medical Home is a health care setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients, and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient’s family. Care is facilitated by registries, information technology, health information exchange and other means to assure that patients get the indicated care when and where they need and want it in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner.
How does a Patient-Centered Medical Home affect you?
Southwest Medical is dedicated to providing our patients with the right care in the right setting. Being a Patient-Centered Medical Home helps us do that by combining technology, information and other resources to deliver care when and where our patients need it.
Southwest Medical prides itself in being recognized as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This recognition symbolizes our commitment to deliver to our patients a higher standard of care that facilitates a partnership between the patient and their health care provider. Southwest Medical was recognized for both adult and pediatric medicine, effective September 19, 2011.
