WELLONE ACHIEVES RECOGNITION FROM THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE FOR QUALITY ASSURANCE

December 19th, 2019

December 2019 ‘” WellOne Primary Medical and Dental Care is pleased to announce it has successfully achieved the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) status for its health center in Scituate, also known as the Scituate Neighborhood Health Station. The Scituate health center opened in November of 2016. Simultaneously, WellOne’s PCMH status for its Burrillville, North Kingstown and Foster health centers was renewed. The recognition was awarded to WellOne from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), a leading PCMH accrediting body, for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care.

The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of primary care that combines teamwork and patient participation to improve care, improve patients’ experience of care and reduce costs. Medical homes provide comprehensive primary care that facilitates partnerships between patients, clinicians, medical staff, and families. It is a medical practice organized to produce higher quality care and improved cost efficiency. Each patient’s care is overseen by clinician-led care teams that coordinate treatment across the health care system.

“This recognition is significant for our patients and staff. It demonstrates that WellOne is providing high-quality, coordinated care that is focused on the patient,” says Peter J. Bancroft, President and CEO of WellOne. “I am very proud of the dedicated, hard-working staff at WellOne who are responsible for earning this recognition.”

“This recognition shows that WellOne Primary Medical and Dental Care has the tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time,” stated NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane.

To earn recognition, WellOne demonstrated the ability to meet the program’s key elements, embodying characteristics of the medical home. NCQA standards aligned with the joint principles of the Patient-Centered Medical Home established with the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Osteopathic Association.
