NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home™ Standards Emphasize Enhanced Care Through Patient-Clinician Partnership
Chappaqua, New York—February 22, 2018—CareMount Medical, the largest independent multispecialty medical group in New York State, has been recognized again by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH). PCMH is a system of care that uses evidence-based, patient-centered processes, focusing on highly coordinated care and long-term relationship building. CareMount Medical earned a Level 3 PCMH Recognition due to its commitment to the patient’s experience.
All of CareMount Medical’s 19 Primary Care locations received recognition as Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Homes in December 2017. CareMount Medical has had the third highest number of facilities designated with a Level 3 designation in the U.S.
“We are honored to once again be recognized by the NCQA with this noteworthy recognition,” said Scott D. Hayworth, M.D., President and CEO of CareMount Medical. “As an organization, we consistently work hard to provide a high standard of care in a patient-centered and compassionate environment close to home. The PCMH recognition illustrates CareMount Medical’s commitment to fostering the ongoing physician-patient partnership.”
As part of the model of care, a CareMount Medical Primary Care Physician (PCP) leads the PCMH team, which includes specialized physicians, nurses, health educators, and other healthcare professionals, to coordinate treatment across the healthcare system. The team works together to create a long-term partnership to manage an individual’s healthcare needs.
