The Tallahassee Memorial Family Medicine Residency Program (FMRP) is amongst an elite level of healthcare practices after being recognized as a National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home. This recognition provides tangible benefits to patients including: more preventive services and screenings, better communication from providers and better management of chronic conditions.
After two years of continuous effort, this designation recognizes past accomplishments, as well as formalizes quality improvement in a manner consistent with nationally recognized standards. Additionally, it ensures the future generations of family medicine doctors from Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare are trained in an environment that provides the highest quality medical care.
We achieved this designation by implementing a few key procedures. We launched morning “huddles” with doctors and nurses to review patients being seen that day. These huddles provide an opportunity to proactively address items, such as needed immunizations or lab tests. We also implemented new internal systems to better track orders for labs, imaging and referrals to ensure they were completed efficiently.
“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,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Recognition shows that Tallahassee Memorial’s Family Medicine Residency Program has the tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time.”
