The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) recently awarded Mobile Physician Services recognition as a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH).

Based in New Port Richey, Fla, Mobile Physician Services provides multi-specialty medical care—including physical therapy and occupational therapy—to homebound patients in 19 counties throughout Florida. The services provided in patients’ homes are the same as those in a traditional medical office, according to a media release from Mobile Physician Services.

To earn the NCQA recognition, which is valid for 3 years, Mobile Physician Services demonstrated the ability to meet the program’s key elements and embodies the characteristics of the medical home model. The NCQA standards for this recognition align with the principles jointly established by the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Osteopathic Association, the release explains.

“It’s a tremendous honor to receive this recognition from NCQA,” says Joanne M. Turner, clinical director of Mobile Physician Services, in the release. “This speaks to the quality of our operations, a function of the skill and experience of our providers and staff.”

“NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition raises the bar in defining high-quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology, and coordinated care focused on patients,” states NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane, in the release.
