WELLONE EARNS NATIONAL RECOGNITION FOR PATIENT-CENTERED CARE

March 7th, 2014

Patient-Centered Medical Home standards emphasize enhanced care through patient-clinician partnership.

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has announced that WellOne Primary Medical and Dental Care has received Recognition from the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) program for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term participative relationships.

The patient-centered medical home is a model of care emphasizing care coordination and communication to transform primary care into “what patients want it to be”. Research shows that medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and improve patients’ and providers’ reported experiences of care. The PCMH identifies practices that promote partnerships between individual patients and their personal clinicians, instead of treating care as the sum of several episodic office visits. Each patient’s care is tended to by clinician-led care teams, who provide for all the patient’s health care needs and coordinate treatments across the health care system. Medical home clinicians demonstrate the benchmarks of patient-centered care, including expanded hours and appropriate use of proven health information systems.

To receive recognition, which is valid for three years, WellOne demonstrated the ability to meet the program’s key elements which embody the characteristics of the medical home. The standards are aligned with the joint principles of the Patient-Centered Medical Home which were established with the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatricians and the American Osteopathic Association.
