MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has announced that the Medical Group Practices at both the WVU Medicine Physician Office Center and the WVU Medicine University Town Centre has maintained NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition. These practices have been recognized multiple times since their initial certification in 2017.
NCQA is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality. Practices recognized by the NCQA as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) demonstrate evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on coordinated care and long-term, participative relationships.
“We are grateful to our nursing staff and Internal Medicine and Pediatrics faculty and resident physicians for their ongoing commitment to creating a medical home for our patients,” said Kelley Gannon, M.D., who has led the Medical Group Practice PCMH initiative since its inception in 2017. “We continue to strive to better serve our patients and ensure they receive the best possible care. Having a great team is imperative to the PCMH process, and our team is one of the best.”
The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of primary care that combines teamwork and information technology to patient to improve patients’ experience of care and reduce costs. Medical homes foster ongoing partnerships between patients and their personal clinicians.
Along with these Medical Group Practices, multiple other WVU Medicine clinics have obtained NCQA PCMH Recognition.
