On behalf of all the doctors at Allied Physicians Group, we are very excited to announce that we’ve earned recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) for 2020 standards. Our Allied offices have achieved this standard since 2014. Across the nation, New York State (NYS) has consistently led in this standard representing 16% of all clinicians in the US and Allied represents approximately 10% of all NYS certified clinicians. Our Allied pediatricians and clinicians continue to place top in this recognition.
PCMH is the gold standard of quality pediatric care. It was initially introduced by the American Academy of Pediatrics in 1967. Our PCMH recognition fully supports our mission and dedication to provide the highest quality healthcare with exceptional service for all. It recognizes that the Allied model of care puts patients at the forefront of care and is committed to continuous quality improvement and a patient-centered approach. Our model emphasizes prevention while setting an example for the treatment of illness, disease, and injury.
What does this mean for our patients?
Allied pediatricians/clinicians place the patient in the spotlight by providing higher-quality coordinated care and communication with patient and family, local hospitals, specialty providers, and their own staff members. The PCMH model has been shown to improve quality and reduce health care costs because certified providers demonstrate quality patient-provider communication strategies, empower patients in their own care management, deliver patient access to care, and put patients at the center of care coordination.
Simply put, PCMH certification means that you and your child will receive superior quality of care and a more positive experience. Your Allied pediatrician/clinician will have a complete picture of your child’s unique health care needs. We, Allied pediatricians/clinicians, use the standards of preventive care to keep your child healthy while giving support when sick and providing care that helps you and your child feel safe.
As always, we thank you for choosing Allied Physicians Group to care for your family.
