MacKoul Pediatrics Cape Coral is proud to announce that we are now a Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) — the highest level recognized by the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA). Hard work pays off!
The PCMH is rapidly gaining popularity as a way to make primary care more accessible, comprehensive, and coordinated; to improve patient outcomes; and to lower overall healthcare costs. The PCMH is based on a team approach that may include physicians, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, and social workers and coordinate with hospital, home healthcare, and community services.
There are 3 levels of NCQA recognition, ranging from Level 1 to Level 3, the highest. Getting there involves meeting requisite elements in 6 “Standard” categories: Enhance Access and Continuity; Identify and Manage Patient Populations; Plan and Manage Care; Provide Self-Care Support and Community Resources; Track and Coordinate Care; and Measure and Improve Performance.
We are the only small, private pediatric practice in Lee County so recognized. There is one other level 3 PCMH in the area (a large group practice)… but NOT a level 3 of our size. We are proud to offer you comprehensive, quality care from a pediatrics office small enough to still know you personally.
