Date:11/27/2013

HOUSTON, Nov. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Texas Children's Pediatrics is proud to announce that all 47 eligible practices have received the highest Patient Centered Medical Home Recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This prestigious and recognizable distinction celebrates patient care organizations which have demonstrated a strong commitment to improving quality care for their patients. In May, Texas Children's Pediatrics Corinthian Pointe was the first practice to receive NCQA's Patient Centered Medical Home 2011 Level 3 recognition, which is the highest level achievable for primary care organizations.

The 2011 NCQA program standards describe clear and specific criteria, and provide medical practices with information about organizing care around patients, working in teams, coordinating and tracking care over time, and continuously measuring and improving performance.

"We are honored that all of our eligible practices have been recognized for our dedication to our patients and families," said Kay Tittle, president of Texas Children's Pediatrics. "NCQA's high standards of the reporting and tracking of our outcomes has enhanced our long-standing commitment of providing exceptional patient care."

Texas Children's Pediatrics, the nation's largest primary pediatric care network with more than 200 physicians in 48 locations throughout the greater Houston area, provides the finest pediatricians dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of infants to teenagers, and our expert physicians offer full-service pediatric care.

The processes implemented throughout all of the practices within the Texas Children's Pediatrics network, have helped improve transparency amongst providers and staff, as well as patient families. The medical care provided has been transformed as each of the practices is now working towards one specific goal every day. Medical practices must seek re-designation from NCQA every three years.

"This notable recognition for our practices has helped strengthen the patient experience across our entire organization," added Tittle. "Every day, we continue to demonstrate that by working together, we are capable of doing great things."
