Awards & Recognitions

Posted July 22, 2016

SVPAM is pleased to announce that our Sewickley office (Dr. David Hennessey & Dr. Robert Schwartz) along with our Wexford office (Dr. Vida Kaniecki) have achieved recognition as a Patient Center Medical Home from NCQA.

NCQA is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality. NCQA accredits and certifies a wide range of health care organizations. It also recognizes clinicians and practices in key areas of performance. NCQA is committed to providing health care quality information for consumers, purchasers, health care providers and researchers.

The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home program reflects the input of the American College of Physicians (ACP), American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and others. It was developed to assess whether clinician practices are functioning as medical homes and recognizes them for these efforts. NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home standards emphasize the use of systematic, patient-centered, coordinated care that supports access, communication and patient involvement.

“NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition raises the bar in defining high-quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology and coordinated care focused on patients,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Recognition shows that Sewickley Valley Pediatrics Sewickley/Wexford have the tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time.”
