With Patient-Centered Medical Home

A Patient-Centered Medical Home is not a place, but an approach to give patients more personal health care, tailored to their individual needs. The Patient Centered Medical Home is a health care setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients, and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient’s family.

The Family Medicine Center at Southern Regional AHEC has been renewed by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a recognized Patient-Centered Medical Home, from 2/24/20 - 2/24/21.

National Commission on Quality Assurance (NCQA). NCQA is a private, nonprofit 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’s Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) is the most widely used performance measurement tool in health care. NCQA’s website ( contains information to help consumers, employers and others make more informed health care choices.


Southern Regional Area Health Education Center’s (SR-AHEC) role in advancing health care education and health care access is unique and multi-faceted. Helping the medical professional provide high quality care to patients drives everything we do.

By offering continuing professional development to practicing health care professionals, we keep people working in allied, behavioral and public health, doctors, dentists, nurses and pharmacists, up-to-date on new innovations and best practices – translating into more health care professionals knowing exactly what do to about what ails their patient.

By coordinating family medicine, pharmacy and behavioral health residencies, we often merge these disciplines specifically to serve our patients. These residencies offer research and practice that help us learn and discover new ways to overcome varied medical challenges.  In Learning we have grown. In Teaching we have given, in Healing we have cared.

I have to say that I love SR AHEC, so maybe I'm not a good one to write a review. I like the fact that my doctors have all been ready and willing to learn how to treat all the crazy things wrong with me, but to also make sure that I know how I can keep my health as good as it can be at my age, and to learn along with me what does and what does not work. Then too, I also like the fact that a couple of the doctors I have dealt with totally disagree with my ideas for keeping my health, but are willing to listen to what I have to say, and consider it - even though they disagree with me.
