Fordland Clinic proudly announces that it recently met the high level of standards required to receive Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model recognition following an evaluation by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

This recognition is a testament to the Fordland Clinic’s commitment to providing high-quality, patient-centered care. The NCQA PCMH Recognition program is the most widely adopted PCMH evaluation program in the country, with more than 13,000 practices and over 67,000 clinicians recognized by NCQA.

PCMH is a care delivery model that puts patients at the forefront of care, and is centered around the patients’ needs, preferences and goals. The PCMH model seeks to improve the patient experience, enhance quality of care and reduce healthcare costs. This marks the seventh-consecutive year that the Fordland Clinic has earned the honor.

“We are honored to be recognized again by the National Committee for Quality Assurance for our commitment to patient-centered care,” said Dave Steinmann, Chief Executive Officer of Fordland Clinic. “This recognition reflects the hard work and dedication of our entire team at Fordland Clinic. We believe in putting our patients first, and the PCMH model aligns perfectly with our mission to provide high-quality care that is tailored to our patients’ needs, preferences and goals.”

For practices to receive this recognition, they must meet standards in six key areas, including: team-based care and organization; care management and support; knowing and managing patients; care coordination and care transitions; patient-centered access and continuity; and performance measurement and quality improvement.
