NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home™ Standards Emphasize Enhanced Care Through Patient-Clinician Partnership
Spring Hill, Florida (October 4, 2016) – Access Health Care announces that the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) declared that Harish Madnani, MD and Hend Farag Abdelmalek, MD, have received NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Level 3 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, 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 healthcare system. Research shows that medical homes can lead to higher quality at lower costs and can improve patient and provider reported experiences of care.
“NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition raises the bar in defining high quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology and coordinated care focused on patients,” said NCQA president Margaret E. O’Kane. “Recognition shows that Drs. Madnani and Abdelmalek have the tools, systems, and resources to provide their patients with the right care, at the right time.”
To earn recognition, which is valid for three years, Dr. Madnani and Dr. Abdelmalek demonstrated the ability to meet the program’s key elements, embodying characteristics of the medical home. NCQA standards aligned with the joint principles of the Patient-Centered Medical Home established with the American College of Surgeons, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Osteopathic Association.
The practice of Dr. Madnani and Dr. Abdelmalek is located at 13911 Lakeshore Boulevard, Hudson, Florida 34667. Call 727-869-8800 to schedule an appointment.
Dr. Madnani is board certified in internal medicine and board certified in hospice and palliative medicine. He specializes in geriatric medicine and clinical hypertension. Dr. Abdelmalek is board certified in family medicine and board certified in geriatric medicine.
