The National Committee for Quality Assurance announced that Goodwin Community Health of Somersworth has received Recognition from the Patient-Centered Medical Home 2011 (PCMH 2011) program for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term participative relationships.
The patient-centered medical home is a model of care emphasizing care coordination and communication to transform primary care into “what patients want it to be.” Research shows that medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and improve patients’ and providers’ reported experiences of care.
To receive recognition, which is valid for three years, Goodwin Community Health demonstrated the ability to meet the program’s key elements embodying characteristics of the medical home.
