In June 2012, Children’s Medical Group earned the honor of being recognized as a Patient-Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance ( www.ncqa.org ) . In August 2015, we earned that recognition again. A Patient-Centered Medical Home is a medical practice that follows nationally-defined quality principles of physician/patient relationships, access to care, care coordination, and treating the patient as a whole person.
One of the related Medical Home changes in our practice that patients will notice is our PATIENT INTERNET PORTAL, which allows secure internet access to our office. Patients and parents may send non-urgent e-mails to our staff for a variety of requests or needs. The portal also allows secure access to parts of the medical record, such as vaccine records, growth charts, and lab results. Ask us about how to register for this free service.
Many thanks to our staff, who have worked extremely hard to maintain such high standards of patient care and follow up.
