Manet, North Quincy earns national recognition for Patient-Centered care

Posted April 20, 2017

NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home

 

Manet's North Quincy practice site has received NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term, participative relationships.

The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of primary care that combines teamwork and information technology to improve care, improve patients’ experience of care and reduce costs. Medical homes foster ongoing partnerships between patients and their personal clinicians, instead of approaching care as the sum of episodic office visits. Each patient’s care is overseen by clinician-led care teams that coordinate treatment across the health care system. Research shows that medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patient and provider reported experiences of care.

To earn recognition, which is valid for three years, Manet, North Quincy has demonstrated the ability to meet the program’s key elements, embodying characteristics of the medical home. In 2014, all of Manet's Quincy and Hull sites attained recognition. They are currently in the process of applying for renewal, and Manet's Taunton site, which opened in 2014, is applying for its first recognition.

NCQA standards aligned with the joint principles of the Patient-Centered Medical Home established with the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Osteopathic Association.

Meals on Wheels—A Lifeline for Seniors

Do you know someone who could benefit this holiday season?

Meal preparation is something most of us do every day without much thought or effort, but for some seniors it can be a difficult or impossible chore, particularly for those who are recovering from surgery or illness or who can't get to the market on a regular basis.

Manet Community Health Center, in partnership with South Shore Elder Services, offers a vital Meals on Wheels and catered lunch program to help support seniors in need.
