There are many factors that go into creating what the healthcare industry calls a “Medical Home.” Essentially, it’s about keeping patients healthy by providing the highest level of proactive and patient-centered medical care. At the heart of that is the Primary Care Practice.
We’re proud to say that HMH’s Family Care Center – Freeman Creek has attained the highest level of Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition with a score of 99 out of 100 points. With that score, the National Committee for Quality Assurance, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality, has recognized Family Care Center – Freeman Creek at the highest level – a Level III PCMH.
Dr. Jody Prather leads the Freeman Creek practice. Prather said that the achievement was a total team effort and credited the experienced and dedicated HMH team, including the IT department for helping establish data tracking systems that allow the Freeman Creek team to be more proactive with patient care.
The score takes into account not only the health of patients but also their overall experience – the caring nature of staff, the appearance of the facility, and more. Dr. Prather thanked the entire team including the two Freeman Creek Nurse Practitioners, Erin Bryant and Brooke Taylor.
“We care for our patients, and we want everything to be as easy as possible for them from start to finish,” Taylor said.
Congratulations to the Freeman Creek team and all who contributed to the recognition. We know our patients are the greatest beneficiaries. Looking for a primary care practice or your medical home? Click here or a listing of HMH primary care practices.
