Sunflower Rural Health Clinic was recently accredited for Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by The Compliance Team (TCT), a Medicare-approved accreditation organization. After successful completion of the program, Sunflower Rural Health Clinic received Exemplary Provider™ status, TCT’s exclusive accreditation designation.
“Forward thinking healthcare providers like the team at Sunflower Rural Health Clinic (RHC) understand the importance of improving patient care and outcomes through the PCMH approach,” explained Kate Hill, VP of TCT’s Clinic Division. “The communities they serve now receive even better care as a result of their time and dedication to securing the Exemplary Provider distinction.”
PCMH puts special emphasis on health maintenance, preventative screening, multi-specialty medical services, patient experience reporting, and benchmarking. Patient-centered programs and value-based care are advanced by the Institute of Medicine and the nation’s leading primary care physician societies.
“Becoming an accredited Patient-Centered Medical Home has been a journey and a wonderful learning experience,” declared Joanie Perkins, Sunflower RH Clinic’s Chief Compliance Officer. “We are pleased to say that we made it, and excited to report with a perfect score.”
