Newton Family Physicians has been recognized as a Patient Centered Medical Home by the National Committee of Quality Assurance and we are also a Blue Cross Blue Shield Blue Quality designated physician’s practice (BQPP).
The Patient Centered Medical Home is a philosophy of primary care that is comprehensive, team-based, coordinated, accessible and focused on quality and safety. Our practice emphasizes treating patients with respect, dignity and compassion. It is our hope that this will help build a strong relationship to allow us to work together with our patients to best serve their needs.
Patient Centered : A partnership among providers patients and families ensures that patients' needs and preferences are respected and that patients have the education and support they need to make decisions
and participate in their own care. Patients are able to access services with shorter waiting times, "after hours" care, 24/7 electronic or telephone access, and strong communication
through health IT innovations.
