The 16 physicians and 15 nurse practitioners working at the aforementioned health centers are among a handful of providers in the State to receive this recognition. The three health conditions that were chosen as a part of the evaluation by NCQA were diabetes, asthma and pediatric care.
“The patient-centered medical home promises to improve health and health care” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “The active, ongoing relationship between a patient and a physician in medical homes fosters an all-too-rare goal in care: staying healthy and preventing illness in the first place. PPC PCMH Recognition shows that Geiger Gibson Community Health Center, Harbor Community Health Center Hyannis and Neponset Health Center have the tools, systems and resources to provide their patients with the right care at the right time.”
During the past several years, our Community Health Centers became the epitome of the Patient Centered Medical Home facilitating care for our patients through ongoing patient participation, progressive care coordination working side by side with local hospitals and specialists, the development and use of high risk patient registries, electronic medical records and a robust bilingual patient portal.
