December 01, 2014
“Patient-Centered Medical Homes are models of health care that assemble a practice team of health care professionals and staff that put the patient needs at the center.”
- Charles F. Orellana, MD
Charles F. Orellana, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Clinical Care Associates for Penn Medicine, recently discussed how patient-centered medical homes are transforming the delivery of primary care, placing the patient at the center.
Numerous Penn internal and family medicine practices have received Level III certification from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for providing coordinated, efficient care through the Patient-Centered Medical Home program. This Level III certification is the highest designation granted by the NCQA.
