It's always nice to hear that our efforts are being recognized. Here are a few organizations that have done just that.
CAC-Florida Medical Centers, taking care of your health is our number one priority. That's why we are so proud to be the first medical group in South Florida* to have been awarded three-year recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and the American Diabetes Association Diabetes Recognition Program.
NCQA is an independent organization that reviews and reports on the quality of health care organizations. The NCQA seal is a recognized symbol of quality that shows an organization is well managed and provides high quality care and service.
NCQA recognizes the important role that physicians play in promoting health care quality. NCQA developed the Physician Recognition Program to help physicians support the delivery of high-quality care.
NCQA, in partnership with the American Diabetes Association, developed the Diabetes Physician Recognition Program (DPRP) to recognize physicians who have met standards that show that high-quality care was provided to patients with diabetes. Physicians who receive DPRP recognition show their patients and other doctors in the diabetes community that they are part of a special group that is publicly recognized for its skill in providing the best diabetes care. “Physicians who earn recognition through the Diabetes Physician Recognition Program have an established track record of providing excellent diabetes care,” said John Buse, M.D., PhD, President, Medicine & Science, American Diabetes Association. “The list of recognized doctors is the first place to look if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with diabetes.”
This recognition is a magnificent honor for CAC-Florida Medical Centers. We are extremely proud of the quality of care that our physicians and clinical staff provide and the dedication shown to our patients.
Patient Centered Medical Home (NCQA) In 2012, CAC-Florida Medical Centers received an additional recognition: NCQA patient Centered Medical Home in measureable quality improvements.
“The patient-centered medical home is a way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into "what patients want it to be." Medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patients’ and providers’ experience of care.”
The Alliance for Aging, Inc., is a not-for-profit organization that is the community leader responsible for serving as the focal point on aging in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties.
The Alliance for Aging offers a wide range of services and information aimed at meeting the needs of older persons and their families. The Alliance operates the Aging Resource Center, an important new initiative providing elders and their caregivers with information and referral, and linkages to services through state and federally funded programs and other community resources.
The Alliance for Aging recognized CAC-Florida Medical Centers for its outstanding community service on behalf of older people in Miami-Dade County, on April 25, 2008.
Thanks to a new partnership with the University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Studies, UM nursing students have a chance to experience the variety and career opportunities of community nursing firsthand at CAC's Medical Centers. The University of Miami is known for its quality, so this partnership demonstrates the nursing school's confidence in CAC's patient care.
