Marshall Family Practice Earns National Quality Recertification

March 19, 2024

Marshall Family Practice has earned recertification as a Level 3 patient-centered medical home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.  The Level 3 designation is the highest level of recognition by NCQA. NCQA is recognized as a leading national authority on health care quality. This is the third time NCQA has recertified Marshall Family Practice, which originally earned the recognition in 2014.

“The fact that our staff is continually able to meet or exceed the requirements of the NCQA recertification process is a testimony to their hard work and advocacy for our patients,” said Angy Littrell, President and CEO of Fitzgibbon Hospital. “Patients with chronic illness engage with our nurses, physicians and care managers and benefit tremendously through the extra opportunities for education and disease self-management in this clinic. This is a shining example of Fitzgibbon fulfilling its mission to ‘Improve the Health of Our Community.’”

To qualify as a patient-centered medical home, clinics must actively engage patients in their plans of care by connecting with medical and social resources, offering easy access to care in line with patient preferences and providing a comprehensive approach that addresses both primary medical care and mental health needs.

Becoming a patient-centered medical home also increases communication at the clinic level and allows providers to offer coordinated care to patients including prevention, wellness, acute care and chronic care.

The National Committee for Quality Assurance is a private organization committed to improving health care quality across the United States. Its recognition programs are built on evidence-based, nationally recognized clinical standards of care. NCQA accredits and certifies a wide range of health care organizations. It also recognizes clinicians and practices in key areas of performance. NCQA is committed to providing health care quality information for consumers, purchasers, health care providers and researchers.
