Achieve Patient-Centered Medical Home Certification
The patient-centered essence of the Medical Home practice model is an ideal fit with AAAHC as it pertains to quality care and patient safety. This model is best described as a philosophy of medical care that is patient-centered, comprehensive, team-based, coordinated, and focused on quality and safety.
Enhance quality care and patient safety
This onsite certification evaluates a practice against AAAHC Standards for a Medical Home. As with our accreditation program, our surveyors make an onsite visit to assess how your organization meets the Standards at the point of care and from a patient perspective.
We recognize that becoming a Patient-Centered Medical Home is a transformative process. The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) certification includes consultative support for your organization before, during, and after the survey.
PCMH Standards include
- Patient rights and responsibilities
- Organizational governance and administration
- The patient/care team relationship
- Comprehensiveness, continuity, and accessibility of care
- Clinical records and health information
- Quality of care
