Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition for all three Primary Care offices

04/30/2015

Tufts Medical Center's Primary Care offices in Framingham, Quincy and Boston have all been recognized as Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH) with a Level III status from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This recognition lasts for 3 years and helps honor the important work that we've done to make sure each of our practices meets the requirements for a patient-centered medical home. 

Requirements we met to receive this recognition include:

  • Patients having ongoing relationships with personal physicians who are trained to provide first contact, continuous and comprehensive care.
  • A team of physicians leads the practice and take responsibility for ongoing care of patients.
  • The physicians provide all of their patient's primary care and arrange for specialty care when needed. 
  • Care is coordinated across a health system
  • Strong quality and safety
  • Patients are able to schedule appointments easily and quickly

Congrats to our Primary Care teams who have worked so hard to make their offices as patient-friendly and patient-centered as possible!
