Six Banner Health clinics in Weld receive recognition for care coordination

Six Banner Health clinics, including three in Greeley, were recognized Thursday for their coordinated care program.

The National Committee for Quality Assurance recognized the clinics for their Patient-Centered Medical Home 2011 program, which uses evidence-based, patient-centered methods that focus on highly coordinated care and building long-term relationships between the provider and patients, according to a Banner news release.

The patient-centered medical home emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care in an effort to improve the experience for patients, the release stated. Research has shown that medical homes can lead to higher quality care and lower costs.

The six Weld County facilities included one clinic each in Johnstown, Eaton and Windsor as well as the internal medicine, family medicine and pediatrics clinics in Greeley.

They were selected because they followed patient-centered medical home standards established with the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Osteopathic Association, the release stated.
