Praise for PCMH

“We understand the advantage of treating the whole person and coordinating care among all treatment providers. To achieve this aim, we have chosen the NCQA path toward becoming a patient centered medical home. Their standards align with our mission to continuously improve the quality of patient care. We use health information technology to monitor our performance, and our local Rhode Island Regional Extension Center has been invaluable in helping us use this technology in a meaningful way.”
