Hunterdon Cardiovascular Associates Achieves NCQA Patient Centered Specialty Practice (PCSP) Tier 3 Accreditation

Hunterdon Cardiovascular Associates | New Jersey

What is NCQA Patient Centered Specialty Practice Recognition?

A Patient Centered Specialty Practice (PCSP) focuses on proactive coordination and sharing information. The practice works as a team to coordinate care with your primary doctor, other referring clinicians, community resources and services as needed.

We organize care on behalf of our patients and family members to reduce risk and improve outcomes, as well as improving quality of life and patient needs. Specialty practices are required to organize care across all practices and patient visits—centering care on the patient, instead of on the care setting.

  • Integrated care produces better outcomes. A PCSP ensures strong communication between primary care practices and specialists.
  • Improved quality of care. Hunterdon Cardiovascular Associates plays a key role in achieving the “triple aim” of better quality, better patient experience and reduced overall cost to both patients and the health care system
  • PCSPs allow patients to receive the most comprehensive coordinated care. This ensures the best possible outcomes for patients, reduced emergency room visits, and improved patient experience.
  • Better management of chronic conditions. Research shows that these conditions are managed better in a medical home
  • Better communication with practice. NCQA PCSP Recognition promotes effective coordination and communication between specialists and primary care providers. This ensures timely and appropriate referrals and consultations

At Hunterdon Cardiovascular Associates (HCA) we are taking a proactive approach in safeguarding our patients to reduce the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, we urge you to call the Hunterdon Medical Center (HMC) patient hotline at 908 788-6440 or contact your primary care physician as soon as possible. In addition, we ask that, if you believe you have potentially been exposed to someone who is demonstrating symptoms, or has been diagnosed with COVID19, that you contact our office and speak with a staff member who will ask you several questions to determine whether you should be seen in our office, the emergency department or by your primary care physician.

We are scheduling patients currently utilizing the CDC, Cardiology Society and the Department of Health recommendations (sanitizing, social distancing and screening patients before they enter the practice). We are always available for your urgent questions and will continue to have a cardiologist on call 24/7.

In the coming weeks we will be offering alternative measures, such as telemedicine to continue to take care of our patients.

Again, our objective is to reduce risk in our patient population and staff members.

In the meantime, we ask that you keep yourself informed by logging on to the CDC (WEBSITE) for the latest information ensuring that you follow their recommendation in reducing the spread of coronavirus (avoiding close contact with others as much as possible).

We all must do our part to flatten the curve and stall the spread of this virus.

As information changes in our communities, the state of NJ and the CDC, we will continue to keep you informed.

Wishing all of our patients good health.
