More About Mountain Laurel Medical Westernport news

Westernport, MD- Mountain Laurel Medical Center’s Westernport location receives the National Committee for Quality Assurance Patient-Centered Medical Home status.

Shawn Long, Chief Medical Officer, says, “The NCQA PCMH Recognition was developed to identify medical practices that have invested in a model of care that puts the patients at the forefront and where continuous quality improvement is a priority. Mountain Laurel Medical Center adopted this model over 7 years ago and set the stage for all sites to uniformly provide care using policies and procedures that align with this concept and achieve a high standard of care. So, thank you to every employee across the organization who contributes daily to the continuation of this level of care. Thank you to the Westernport team. Since the day of opening that site, the entire staff has displayed team-based care; has placed a value on care management and patient education; has tracked, measured, and continuously improved the quality of care; has prioritized care transitions; and has provided incredible access for the community they serve.”

More About this Event Poster: Mountain Laurel Medical Center

The Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model for the delivery of primary health care in an office setting that is becoming widely implemented across the country as a means to build a reliable primary health care system that delivers accessible, affordable and high-quality health care.
The Patient Centered Medical home provides Comprehensive and Coordinated Care. PCMH strives to meet the majority of each patient’s physical and mental health care needs, including prevention and wellness, acute care and chronic care. This comprehensive care will be coordinated by a “team” of health care staff which will include physicians, advanced practice nurses and physician assistants, nurses, medical assistants, care managers, educators, social workers and the entire office staff working together to enhance the care and service within the office and community resulting in improved clear and open communication among patients and families, the medical home and the members of the broader care team.

PCMH provides for Superb Access to Care. The primary care medical home delivers accessible services with shorter waiting times for urgent needs, enhanced office hours and around the clock access by telephone to members of the health care team. The medical home practice is responsive to patient preferences regarding access.

Patient Centered Medical Home is a Systems-Based Approach to Quality and Safety. The primary care medical home is committed to quality care and quality improvement by ongoing utilization of evidence-based medicine and the use of tools and support guides to improve shared decision making with patients and families and the regular use of practice measurements and monitoring to improve patient care and outcomes while also measuring and responding to patient experiences and satisfaction.

Mountain Laurel has received the highest recognition as a Patient Centered Medical Home through the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). We are committed to providing high quality, team based, comprehensive and coordinated care for all patients.
