The CCC has achieved a Level 3 Recognition as a Patient Centered Medical Home by the National Committee of Quality Assurance
The Center for Comprehensive Care has achieved a Level 3 recognition – the highest level possible – by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH). NCQA awards clinical practices that show systematic use of patient-centered, coordinated care management processes, as well as information technology, to provide quality patient care. With this recognition, the CCC is positioned to take advantage of financial incentives offered by health plans as well as to participate in federal and state-sponsored pilot programs. Most importantly, certified Primary Care Medical Homes are viewed by patients and other community based organizations as excellent service providers who have met the nationally recognized standards for delivering high-quality care.
This achievement did not come easily. First, the CCC had to be all they are: a high quality, robust, integrated and patient-centered care provider. Second, they had to have a team of dedicated staff to put together a very demanding application. Shanti Jimenez led a team through the application process over the past year that included: Ross Adelglass, Tannasia Gonzalez, Susan Heffron, Jenny Mayer, Christine Nollen, Lia Tsveniashvili, Tony Urbina and Robert Warford. Congratulations on this great accomplishment!
