    Novant Medical Group Achieves Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition Milestone

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. – One hundred practices across Novant Medical Group (NMG), the physician network affiliate with Presbyterian Healthcare and Novant Health, are now recognized as Patient-Centered Medical Homes by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This designation signifies that the practices have met a set of NCQA national standards established to improve health through the coordinated management of patient care.

    The American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Osteopathic Association have jointly defined the medical home as a model of care in which each patient has an ongoing relationship with a personal physician who leads a team that takes collective responsibility for that patient’s care.

    In the medical home model, the primary care physician serves as a quarterback, directing other team members in their roles to ensure that every patient gets appropriate care at the right place, right time and in the right amount to support his or her optimal health. The model also helps ensure that when patients need to go elsewhere for tests or specialty care, the team has a process in place to ensure that the results are added to the patient’s medical files and become part of that patient’s care.

    Other aspects of the medical home model include open scheduling, expanded hours, reminders of regular check-ups and other preventive care steps, as well as a patient-provider relationship that keeps patients and their families actively involved in their health.

    “Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition is a major accomplishment that supports our providers and, most importantly, our patients,” said Herb Clegg, M.D., president of NMG. “This model of care is closely aligned with our organization’s mission, vision and values, and our goal is for all of our primary care practices to become medical homes.”
