Baylor Family Medicine has been awarded National Committee for Quality Assurance Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition.
The NCQA is a private not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare quality. Sponsored by NCQA, the Patient-Centered Medical Home is a way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication that often leads to higher quality and lower costs.
“NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition raises the bar in defining high quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology and coordinated care focused on patients,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Recognition shows that Baylor Family Medicine has the tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time.”
