Crouse Medical Practice (CMP) in Syracuse has achieved Level 3 certification, the highest level, from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH).
“We are honored to have received the highest level of PCMH recognition,” said Carl Butch, MD, medical director for CMP, a multi-specialty medical practice affiliated with Crouse Health. “Our providers are staying ahead of the curve by providing patient-centered medical care. This PCMH designation is a reflection of the adoption of this model of care.”
PCMH accreditation is considered one of the leading standards of measuring a medical practice’s commitment to patient-centered care using evidence-based procedures. To gain recognition by the PCMH program, medical clinicians or sites must go through a rigorous application process and are evaluated on a set of standardized points, established by a 22-member committee comprised of practice, medical association, physician group, health plan, consumer and employer group representatives.
If an applicant receives PCMH distinction, they are designated an award level of Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 – with Level 3 being the most prestigious, based upon total points received. The measurement standards are established in conjunction with the principles of the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Osteopathic Association.
Crouse Medical Practice has more than 80 medical providers in 10 locations throughout Onondaga County. In addition to primary care offices, CMP has specialty offices in cardiology; otolaryngology (ENT); neurology and neurosurgery. Neurosurgery patients can be seen in Syracuse and Utica, NY.
