Schneck Primary Care has received Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) redesignation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance for its efforts to provide patients with a personalized and highly coordinated healthcare experience.
 
This is the second consecutive year that Schneck Primary Care has received the recognition.
 
“We are honored to be recognized as a Patient Centered Medical Home,” said Susan Zabor, MSN, RN, CSSBB, Vice President of Clinical and Provider Management and Chief Quality Officer at Schneck. “As an organization, we consistently work to provide a high standard of care in a patient-centered and compassionate environment close to home.”
 
The patient-centered medical home model is a way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into “patient friendly” medical care. Medical homes can lead to higher quality care, lower costs, improved patient and provider experience, and more patients engaged in their healthcare.
 
“The PCMH recognition is another example of our efforts to develop a long-term personal relationship with each patient while providing high-quality medical care,” said Zabor. “Stronger provider/patient engagement, better access to appointments, proactive intervention, and careful management of chronic conditions are some of the cornerstones of PCMH that we have embraced during this quality improvement process.”
