Martin's Point Earns National Recognition for Patient-Centered Care

August 7, 2020

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has announced that all seven Martin's Point Health Care centers have received the highest level of NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition.

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model of care that puts patients at the forefront of their care. PCMHs build better relationships between patients and their health care teams. Research shows they improve quality, the patient experience, and staff satisfaction, while reducing health care costs.

NCQA’s Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition Program is the most widely adopted Patient-Centered Medical Home evaluation program in the country. More than 12,000 practices (with more than 60,000 clinicians) are recognized by NCQA. Recognized practices have made a commitment to quality improvement and a patient-centered approach to care that results in patients who are happier and healthier.

“Our PCMH recognition is a significant accomplishment for all of our sites,” said Nicole Thayer, Clinical Integration Risk Management and Quality Assurance Specialist at Martin's Point. “Earning this recognition truly demonstrates our staff’s commitment to providing the highest quality care and service for our patients.”
