Quality

As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) we are required to receive accreditation from HRSA (Health Resources and Services Administration). It is the primary federal agency for improving access to health care services for people who are uninsured, isolated, or medically vulnerable. HRSA improves health and achieves health equity through access to quality services, a skilled health workforce and innovative programs.

All 6 of our Primary Care Practices at Community Health have received Level III recognition for Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH). These Practices include Community Health Rutland, Community Health Castleton, Community Health Brandon, Community Health Mettowee, Community Health  Shorewell and Community Health Pediatrics. Level III is the highest level of recognition that can be achieved for Patient Centered Medical Homes and validates what great work we do for our patients and community.

The Patient Centered Medical Home is a care delivery model whereby patient treatment is coordinated through their primary care physician to ensure they receive the necessary care when and where they need it, in a manner they can understand. PCMH recognition assesses a health center’s approach to patient-centered care. Health centers can achieve PCMH recognition by meeting national standards for primary care that emphasize care coordination and on-going quality improvement.

The HRSA Accreditation and Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition Initiative supports health centers working towards better care and lower costs for patients.
