BUFFALO, NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 26, 2019— Urban Family Practice is pleased to announce that it has been awarded NCQA’s coveted Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition. Medical practices that are bestowed this honor demonstrate that their patient-centered medical home is a model of care that puts patients at the forefront of care and builds better relationships between patients and their clinical care teams.

The NCQA’s Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition program is the most widely adopted medical home evaluation program in the country. Mrs. Toni Vazquez, Co-Founder of the Practice states that “everyone here at UFP is ecstatic that we have received this high-level of national praise for the work that we do every day.” The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) directs the public to healthcare that science says works. It is also responsible for examining how well health plans and doctors provide scientifically recommended care, and identifies organizations that are run in ways that make care better.

GBUAHN (a designated NYS Health Home) was again awarded a three-year NCQA Accreditation for Care Management with a near perfect score of 97%. Even more significant is that GBUACO was the first New York State approved Medicaid and Commercial ACO. The ACO was one of a small group of pilot initiatives that New York State allowed to expand the breadth of New York State Accountable Care Organizations and is one (1) of only four (4) ACO’s accredited in the country.
