Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)
NOTCH has been recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Patient-Centered Medical Home since 2012.
The PCMH model of care places an emphasis on evidence and team-based care, communication, access, and care coordination. It also emphasizes better management of chronic conditions. This means that at NOTCH, we take extra care to track patients who have chronic diseases such as diabetes, or are at an age where critical preventative screenings, such as colonoscopies, need to begin.
NOTCH’s recognition is a reflection of our commitment to improving the health of our community. By managing and preventing chronic disease and promoting healthy lifestyles, we aim to empower our patients to take a proactive approach in managing their self-care and well-being.
