Patient-Centered Medical Home Level 3 Recognition

Bulloch Pediatrics Group is pleased to announce that is has been certified as Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home Program by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This is the highest level of designation that can be achieved.

A patient-centered medical home is a comprehensive approach to providing quality primary care. Bulloch Pediatrics Group works in partnership with each child and his or her family to ensure all medical needs are met. Through this partnership, the pediatric team will help the patient and his or her family access and understand specialty care and other educational/community services.

Obtaining this level of recognition means a practice has demonstrated that it meets required standards including utilization of evidence-based criteria, patient-centered care and information technology in the delivery of care to patients.

In a set of standards that describe clear and specific criteria, the NCQA’s Patient-Centered Medical Home program requires that practices organize care around patients, coordinate care through multi-disciplinary teams and monitor outcomes over time. The PCMH is a health care setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient’s family.
