Obtain Patient-Centered Medical Home Certification
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, at the point of care and from a patient perspective, how your organization meets these Standards.
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.
Medical Home Standards focus on:
- 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
