Your Medical Home
Our medical offices are accredited as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). The recognition notes their use of evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term provider/patient relationships.
The PCMH model of care holds significant promise for better healthcare quality, improved involvement of patients in their own care and a reduction of avoidable treatments and costs over time and promotes partnerships between each patient and his/her provider. The provider manages the office visit and works with referral physicians throughout the treatment of the patient. It is anticipated that in the coming year the entire MVHS medical group will be moving to this model of care.
Setting up the practices to be more accessible to patients with pro-active follow up means healthier patients, who have fewer hospitalizations and emergency department visits in the long run.
An advantage of the larger group is our ability to have office locations and provide services throughout the Mohawk Valley. Future goals include looking at areas that are underserved, lacking primary care providers, and expanding our reach to make primary and specialty care more accessible. Another advantage is the relationship with the St. Elizabeth Family Medicine Residency Program. Working with physicians who are completing their residency in our area at one of our affiliated hospitals (SEMC) provides us with increased opportunities for physician recruitment.
Accredited office locations include Barneveld, Boonville, Clinton, Herkimer, Little Falls, Mohawk, New Hartford, Sauquoit, Town of Webb (Old Forge), Utica, Washington Mills, Waterville and Whitesboro.
