CHASS Awarded Level 3 PCMH Recognition
Tuesday, January 12, 2016
Community Health & Social Services (CHASS) was awarded a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition from the National Council for Quality Assurance.
PCMH is an approach for providing quality, comprehensive, coordinated primary and preventive care to adults, youth, and children. At its heart, this model of care fosters strong relationships with patients and their families to deliver higher quality care that comprehensively addresses a person’s needs. The intended outcomes of a high-functioning PCMH Health Center include improved patient outcomes, patient safety, patient experience, and possibly lower costs through the delivery of evidence-based patient care, reducing waste and improving efficiencies, increasing delivery of preventive services, and fostering population health management.
The Health Resources and Services Administration and the Bureau of Primary Health Care support Health Center Program grantees in achieving PCMH recognition.
More than three-fourths of Michigan Primary Care Association members have achieved PCMH recognition and accreditation via the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, The Joint Commission, and the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
Congratulations on this achievement!
