Celebratory Moment - PCMH Recognized
Congratulations to the HSNHC team for yet another great accomplishment that position you to better serve our community. Last week, the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) announced that Harvard Street Neighborhood Health Center received NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) level II Recognition. HSNHC truly takes pride in being a partner in healthy living by having the right tools, systems and resources to provide exceptional level of care.
You may be wondering, what is PCMH? PCMH is a care delivery model that combines teamwork and information technology to improve care, improve patients’ experience of care and reduce costs. Fostering an ongoing partnership between patients and their personal clinicians eliminates the old approach of handling care as an episodic office visit. In essence, the coordinated care ensures patients receive the necessary medical attention when and where they need it and in a manner they fully understand. Over the next several months, HSNHC will be implementing changes that further promotes a more patient centered practice.
