The Family Health Care Center, RPS Internal Medicine, and Family Medicine Associates of Birdsboro, have been recognized by the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA) for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term participative relationships.
The Family Health Care Center is a Hospital-based practice, RPS Internal Medicine is part of Reading Professional Services, and Birdsboro Family Medicine is a member of The Reading Hospital Medical Group. All three practices fall under The Reading Hospital (TRH) system.
The Physician Practice Connections – Patient-Centered Medical Home program of NCQA is a model of health care delivery that strives to improve the quality and efficiency of care. The three TRH practices have been identified for promoting partnerships between individual patients and clinicians promoting a unique, but highly effective method of delivering care. Clinician-lead care teams provide for all patient needs and also coordinate additional treatment throughout the system.
Medical home clinicians utilize open scheduling, expanded hours, and use of proven health information systems.
