Community Care Physicians, PC was the first medical group in the Capital Region to have its primary care practices awarded Recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Physician Practice Connections® — Patient-Centered Medical Home™ (PPC-PCMH) Program. Our pediatric practices received Level 3 Recognition, the highest level achievable. PPC-PCMH measures certain aspects of care including access and communication; patient tracking and registry functions; care management; patient self-management support; electronic prescribing; test tracking; referral tracking; performance reporting and improvement; advanced electronic communications.
With the medical home model, patients are active participants in their care and the primary care physician serves as the "home", or the office where patients go for the majority of their medical needs. The medical home model focuses on a team approach. Primary care physicians, specialists and the patient all communicate and work towards the same health care goal, through patient counseling, discussion of lifestyle changes, and the management of chronic conditions.
This designation affirms our commitment to the delivery of innovative, quality, compassionate healthcare for our patients.
