All 81 of Intermountain’s family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatric clinics have received Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). The recognition shows our clinics meet the nation’s highest standards for primary care delivery and signifies three years’ worth of hard work to improve patient care.
Caregivers and providers from all 81 clinics have been working hard since late 2017 to meet the requirements to earn the Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition. To meet the criteria, the clinics implemented multiple standard processes and demonstrated they were following the processes.
“The thing I really love about the NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home model is the focus on what patients want and need from primary care,” says Shauri Kaugie, RN, clinical manager of personalized primary care. “This PCMH model focuses on health, closing care gaps, helping those with chronic complex conditions, working as a team, providing access when and how patients want it, providing coordinated high-quality care, and always striving to improve. This is the care we need to be providing with the goal to continue to focus on the patients we’re privileged to serve.”
