Patient Centered Medical Home
Clarke-Oconee Family Practice is recognized as a "Patient Centered Medical Home"
(National Committee on Quality Assurance).
"NCQA's Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) 2011 (2008) is an innovative program for improving primary care. In a set of standards that describe clear and specific criteria, the program gives practices information about organizing care around patients, working in teams and coordinating and tracking care over time. The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home standards strengthen and add to the issues addressed by NCQA's original program.
The 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."
