Changebridge Medical Associates Receives Highest Patient-Centered National Recognition

 Changebridge Medical Associates, of Montville, New Jersey, has achieved the highest Level 3 ranking as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) from the National Committee for Quality Assurance. This provides the opportunity to use the NCQA Recognized Practice 2011 seal through 2014, which is widely recognized as symbol of quality by federal, state and corporate entities. It stands for excellence and accountability and can only be earned by a medical practice that passes a rigorous, comprehensive review and annual reporting of performance. For patients, this seal is a reliable indicator that a practice is well-managed and delivers high quality care and service. Only a handful of medical practices have been able to achieve this important recognition in New Jersey.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious distinction from the NCQA in the Physician Practice Connections® – Patient-Centered Medical Home™ category,” said Dr. Arnold Pallay, FAAFP, medical director of Changebridge Medical Associates, and director of Personalized Genomic Medicine at Atlantic Health System. “Earning the seal is a milestone and a reflection of our family-practice philosophy, patient-centered dedication and quarter-century tradition of caring for entire families in our community.” 

Changebridge Medical Associates is a perfect fit for this assurance to patients.  A PPC-PCMH is a physician office where healthcare professionals work as teams to provide patients with care in what is individually determined to meet their specific needs.  Healthcare team members strive to know their patients, as well as their preferences regarding care. The team also coordinates patient care with other healthcare professionals. As such, the practice becomes patients’ “homes” for preventive, chronic and ambulatory care.  NCQA’s PCHM standards emphasize the use of systemic, patient-centered, coordinated care that supports access, communication, and patient improvement.

Dr. Frank Iannetta, FAAFP, practice partner of Changebridge Medical Associates, also explains “This approach to healthcare is a partnership where open two-way communication is the key to best outcomes for individuals and their entire families. Our patients are part of our family.”

 The criteria for NCQA PPC-PCMH requires that medical practices include having readily accessible, clinically useful information that enabled the healthcare team to treat patients comprehensively; maintaining continuous relationships with patients by implementing evidence-based guidelines and applying them  to identified needs of individual patients; collaborating with patients and their families to pursue goals for optimal achievable health; and, seeking to reduce medical errors and improve efficiency.

Changebridge Medical Associates, P.A. has been a leader in the adoption of electronic health records and has attained Meaningful Use compliance with insurance intermediaries by way of the 2010 Affordable Care Act passed by Congress. In addition, Changebridge providers continue to offer hospitalized patients and nursing home/ambulatory care patients of the practice with the full continuity of care that is a paramount piece of a Patient Centered Medial Home designation status.

A Royal Pain

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
