Homosassa & Spring Hill, Florida (August 1, 2019)– Access Health Care Physicians, LLC, is proud to announce that Grigor Varlakov, MD, FAAFP, board-certified in family medicine, and his team have achieved renewal recognition under the National Committee for Quality Assurance PCMH Recognition Program.
The National Committee for Quality Assurance will list Dr. Varlakov and his location on its website with a recognition seal. Dr. Varlakov and his team practice at 8365 S. Suncoast Boulevard, Homosassa, Florida 34446. Call 352-382-0258 to schedule an appointment.
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) reviewed the submission, and the practice has received NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long term, participative relationships.
Earning PCMH recognition is a distinction in which a practice can take pride. The NCQA Patient Centered Medical Home is a model of primary care that combines teamwork and information technology to improve care, improve patients’ experience of care and reduced cost. Medical Homes foster ongoing partnership between patients and their personal clinicians, instead of approaching care as a sum of episodic office visits. Each patient’s care is overseen by clinician-led care teams that coordinate treatment across the healthcare system. Research shows that Medical Homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs and can improve patient and provider reported experiences of care.
