More PCMH Recognition in Colorado Benefits Primary Care Providers

Community Health Centers (CHCs) always focus on offering patient-centered care. And they also work to become each patient’s medical home – the place that a patient goes for a regular check-up or other medical, dental, and behavioral health concerns.

As CHCs continue to grow the patient experience, an organization called the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) sets standards, and also awards health care facilities with Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition. The PCMH model aims to make the entire health care system higher quality and more affordable.

What does PCMH recognition for a CHC mean for providers? For one, it means that you have the opportunity to offer care with a clinical team approach, which allows you to focus on continuity of care. And with leadership’s support for the PCMH model, clinicians have the opportunity to work in an environment where clinical innovation and evidence based practice receives support from top levels.  It also means that clinics have well designed access, communication, patient self-management support and systems for test tracking and referral tracking which makes it easier for you to provide high quality care and stay up to date regarding patients.

Several Colorado CHCs have dedicated time and resources to prepare for the extensive application and have already been recognized by NCQA for their PCMH model of care, and other CHCs’ recognition is in progress. Check out these Colorado CHCs that have received PCMH recognition so far:

The most recent CHC to get PCMH recognition is Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association-CHC with one clinic location currently in Craig, CO, and a new site opening in Steamboat, CO soon. They have received Level 2 recognition and plan to have Level 3 recognition – the highest recognition offered – by next year. This is a big accomplishment in part because new, and tougher, standards were set for CHCs to get PCMH recognition in 2011.

If you’re interested in joining a team working to grow the PCMH model, check out the websites for the CHCs above, or visit the Community Health Association of Mountain/Plains States (CHAMPS) job board for job listings in Colorado.

    Esses foram os públicos totais das partidas.Não foi o número de torcedores de 5pf0 e inter nos jogos. Muitos eram japoneses, além do jogo ter sido em Tókio; ao contrário, deste jogo do Corinthians.No jogo do Corinthians, dos 31.417 presentes, no mínimo 20.000 eram torcedores do timão. Nos jogos de SP e Inter se chegou a 10.000 foi muito.Mas, no domingo, a expectativa é de cerca de 27.000 corinthianos assistindo a final.

  8. Bradley – I hope to keep getting into the higher mountains this winter, although, obviously, at a slower, snow-hampered pace. But yeah, I expect many laps on Green as well.Astroyam – Oh, believe me, I read the reports on mountainproject beforehand, but just stupidly, naively ignored the warnings that the route was "wet and freaky" and "felt a lot harder than 5.5". I imagine I'll head up the North Chimney in the future, and probably with a helmet.

  13. 晴天2012 年 10 月 10 日梦宝谷版幻想精灵区服:闪耀平原ID号:370角色名:晴天 游戏总提设计不错,很怀旧。提几点意见吧:一、如果你们条件好的话 建议这个设计成2d和3d两个版本,战斗画面在华丽一些。二、任务在丰富一些,比如有每个宠物或者每类宠物的专属任务等等。然后可以奖励一些进化之类的便宜物品(毕竟你们是要挣钱的,高级物品就不奢望了 哈哈)。三、战斗和刷塔的界面改革下手机每天要经历成百上千的点击很累人阿。四、副本人数有点多,建议减少到3-4人。五、还有很多想法,但是会写好几篇的。暂时就写些基本的吧。希望你们生意越来越好,但同时也希望你们给我们玩家带来更好的服务和享受。谢谢啦。

I really made a conscious effort to keep using it even if I didn’t see immediate results. It’s been 4 months now and starting to see some improvements finally!
