Patient-Centered Medical Home in Free and Charitable Clinics

The patient-centered medical home is a model of primary care that is patient-centered, comprehensive, coordinated, accessible and committed to quality and safety. It is transforming care into what patients want it to be.

Americares, BD Advancing Community Health: Driving Quality Outcomes in Free and Charitable Clinics

Americares seeks to improve health outcomes at the population level by championing the safety net sector’s transition to a value-based health care delivery model. Our BD Advancing Community Health: Driving Quality Outcomes Program will support the implementation of national, evidence-based standards at the clinic-level. Americares will support free and charitable clinics to obtain recognition through the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as patient-centered medical homes. Quality improvement experts will help providers integrate behavioral health into primary care services, enabling them to offer holistic care to patients as part of this project.
