We are proud to announce that the UM CMG – Primary Care practice at Bolton Hill has received The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Level 3 Recognition for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long‐term, participative relationships. 

The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of primary care that combines teamwork and information technology to improve care, improve patients’ experience of care and reduce costs. Medical homes foster ongoing partnerships between patients and their personal clinicians, instead of approaching care as the sum of episodic office visits. Each patient’s care is overseen by clinician-led care teams that coordinate treatment across the health care system. Research shows that medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patient and provider reported experiences of care. 

Congratulations to Drs. Robert Chow, Elizabeth Halloran, Gurpreet Sabar, and the entire Bolton Hill Primary Care team for their dedication and efforts toward receiving this prestigious recognition.
