Duffy Health Center Retains Patient-Centered Care Recognition

HYANNIS – Duffy Health Center has been approved to sustain its Recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home after an extensive review by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.

Duffy first received the designation in 2012.

Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of care that makes patients at the forefront as an integral part of their care.

Research indicates the model improves clinical quality and patient experience, increases staff satisfaction and reduces health care costs through improved coordination of care and better management of chronic conditions.

In maintaining the designation, Duffy has demonstrated a commitment to continuous quality improvement and a patient-centered approach to care.

“The PCMH model of care underpins every aspect of the work that we do at Duffy Health Center,” said Heidi Nelson, the CEO of Duffy Health Center. “We are committed to high quality care that empowers our patients to be active participants in their own wellness.”

Duffy’s mission is to provide comprehensive, integrated health care and support services to individuals who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of homelessness on Cape Cod, along with improving the quality of life for vulnerable populations.
