Albuquerque, N.M. — ABQ Health Partners Pediatrics Journal Center location has been awarded level 3 recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) for using evidence-based,  patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term, collaborative relationships in early February. The Gibson location received Level 2 recognition in May 2014, along with the Rio Rancho location in Aug. 2011 and re-recognized in  Sept. 2014.
 
The NCQA is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving health care quality. 
 
“Being acknowledged as a Patient-Centered Medical Home verifies how dedicated we are to providing our patients with the high-quality health care they deserve,” said John Good, M.D., medical director for ABQ Health Partners Pediatrics.
 
Medical homes can serve to promote higher-quality care and lower costs, and they can improve patient and provider-reported experiences of care, according to the NCQA.
 
“ABQ Health Partners achieved this recognition as a result of our commitment to teamwork,” said Dr. Good. “It brings me tremendous pride to work for a company that values the doctor-patient relationship and remains focused on the continuous improvement of health care delivery.”
