Quality of Care

Ensuring that all low-income, uninsured community members have equitable access to high-quality, effective, patient-centered primary health care is central to the Primary Care Coalition’s (PCC) mission. The PCC conducts regular on-site reviews in each Montgomery Cares clinic to:

  • Assess the quality of care
  • Establish priorities for improvement
  • Inform policy and funding decisions
  • Provide objective assessment of changes over time

Our evaluation tools are based on “gold standard” sources such as the National Committee for Quality Assurance and the Joint Commission.

A person’s health care needs are varied and often require attention from multiple providers in multiple settings. One of the PCC’s priorities is to ensure that needed health services are available and that the prescribed treatments and interventions are coordinated among providers.

The PCC offers technical assistance, consultative services, and other resources to support safety-net clinics in providing high-quality care to low-income, uninsured community members.
