Affinity Health Group (Recognized by NCQA)

By September 2016, ten of Affinity Health Group’s primary care practices earned Level III recognition (highest level of recognition) from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for Patient-Centered Medical Home™ (PCMH) recognition.

The Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model that was created to place the patient at the forefront of their care. PCMHs promote partnerships between the patients and their physicians.

Research shows that PCMHs:

  • Improve Healthcare Quality: Provide the treatments patients need, when they need it
  • Reduce the Costs of Care: Identify potentially avoidable hospitalizations and emergency room visits, and deliver preventive care following evidence-based practice guidelines.
  • Improve the Patient Experience: Provide personalized, coordinated care from the entire care team.

NCQA’s mission is to improve the quality of health care. The recognition program is a collection of guidelines built from evidence-based practice focusing on the patient. The recognition program was developed to help clinicians and practices support the delivery of high-quality care.
