Radnor Family Practice has been awarded recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance Patient-Centered Medical Home Program.
The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home standards emphasize the use of systematic, patient-centered, coordinated care that supports access, communication and patient involvement. It was developed to assess whether clinician practices are functioning as medical homes and recognize them for these efforts. “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. €œRecognition shows that Radnor Family Practice has the tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time.”
