The St. Hope Foundation was recently awarded the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s (NCQA) recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH). The PCMH is a healthcare setting that facilitates partnerships between patients and their primary care providers (PCP). The PCPs foster an ongoing relationship with their patients in order to help them stay healthy and prevent illness. They also make treatment decisions together.
“The organizational goals have been focused on delivering the right quality of care, in the right setting, and at the right time,” says Rodney Goodie, Chief Executive Officer of St. Hope Foundation. “Receiving the NCQA certification is truly an honor and demonstrates how St. Hope is continually preparing for surveys in compliance with the highest levels of quality care and patient safety standards.”
This recognition illustrates our unwavering commitment to treating our patients with empathy and humanity — as well as providing prevention services and covering the gaps in health services in Houston and rural counties across Texas. We’re proud to have received this recognition and look forward to continuing to provide exceptional patient services.
The NCQA is an organization whose purpose is to improve the quality of healthcare in the United States. This is achieved by evaluating medical facilities on medical home capabilities, data completeness, core performance, and patient experience. Specifically, the patient-centered medical home program provides an assessment of six key concepts — patient-centered access, team-based care, population health management, care management and support, care coordination and transitions, and performance measurement and quality improvement.
