According to NCQA, the organization that certifies medical homes among other things, CT has no practices that have been certified. Compare that to our neighboring states – MA with 87, ME with 56, NY with 225, NH with 132, RI with 31, and VT with 32.
But we are going to fix this. CT Medicine’s current issue includes several articles featuring the promise of medical homes including one on the patient perspective authored by Sheldon Toubman of New Haven Legal Assistance and myself, and today’s CT State Medical Society’s annual conference features a panel of experts on the subject. CSMS deserves great credit for their leadership on this critical issue.
Many thanks to Rose Stamilio of St. Francis Care for the NCQA numbers.
