The Joint Commission
Affinia Healthcare is proud to share that we are accredited through The Joint Commission.
To achieve the accreditation is a process that promotes high quality and improves both patient safety and healthcare outcomes for our community health center.
Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve health care for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value.
The Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 21,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States, including hospitals and health care organizations that provide ambulatory and office-based surgery, behavioral health, home health care, laboratory and nursing care center services. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
Patient-Centered Medical Home
Affnia Healthcare is committed to high-quality, patient-centered care. Our nationally recognized quality efforts aim to provide our patients with not only the safest, highest quality of care, but a singularly great patient experience.
Affinia Healthcare has been recognized as a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home, the highest level possible, by the National Committee for Quality Assistance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home.
The designation recognizes Affinia Healthcare Services for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term relationships.
NCQA’s Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition program is the most widely adopted PCMH evaluation program in the country. Approximately 13,000 practices (with 67,000 clinicians) are recognized by NCQA. The patient-centered medical home is a model of care that puts patients at the forefront of care.
NCQA is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to assessing and reporting on the quality of managed care plans, managed behavioral healthcare organizations, preferred provider organizations, new health plans, physician organizations, credentials verification organizations, disease management programs and other health-related programs.
