Sunrise is pleased to be recognized for our ongoing commitment to the PCMH standards and has sustained PCMH recognition for all its eligible clinic sites since 2012. The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home standards emphasize the use of systematic, patient-centered, coordinated care that supports access, communication, and patient involvement. “NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition raises the bar in defining high-quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology, and coordinated care focused on patients,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Recognition shows that Sunrise Community Health has the tools, systems, and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time.” The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home program reflects the input of the American College of Physicians (ACP), American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and others.
At Sunrise, Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition means that our care teams build strong connections with each patient and treat the whole person. This approach leads to better health, lower costs, and greater patient satisfaction, and it is at the heart of our mission to provide affordable access to quality health care for all in northeastern Colorado.
