Volunteers in Medicine has been formally recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance for use of the Patient-Centered, Coordinated Care Management model.
The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home standards emphasize the use of systematic, patient-centered, coordinated care that supports access, communication and patient involvement. The Patient-Centered Medical Home model was developed to assess whether clinician practices are functioning as medical homes and recognize them for these efforts. It has been proven to result in better management of chronic conditions, increased patient satisfaction, lower healthcare costs, as well as improved patient-centered access to our services. Through the implementation of this model, the clinic has successfully delivered high-quality medical, behavioral health and dental services that have become a hallmark of Volunteers in Medicine.
VIM is proud to be one of only six free clinics out of 1400 in the nation that has received recognition for our implementation of the PCMH model and will continue to provide exceptional services to the low-income working families in our region.
