Rockville, MD (PRWEB) April 29, 2015
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) launched its newest evaluation program, Patient-Centered Connected Care Recognition, on April 15. This new evaluation recognizes and commends ambulatory care providers that share patients with primary care providers.
More patients are choosing to receive care in non-traditional settings, such as urgent care centers and retail-based clinics. As the source of care changes and patients see multiple providers, the level of coordination and communication between providers has the potential to be affected. NCQA will award seals to those sites that demonstrate extraordinary patient-centered connected care.
In a recent press release, NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane said of the program, “Patient-Centered Connected Care Recognition is a giant leap to reform health care delivery because it includes ambulatory care settings as well as other medical providers outside of primary and specialty care in the connected and coordinated care community.”
