The Oncology Patient Centered Medical Home
The patient centered medical home is both a philosophy and a system for assuring that every patient receives consistent, high quality care.
This means delivering your care in a holistic, coordinated way that is rooted in a well defined set of standards.
CMOH, under the leadership of Dr. John Sprandio, is a national leader in developing and implementing the Oncology Patient Centered Medical Home (OPCMH)® model of care. CMOH is the first hematology/oncology practice to obtain the National Committee on Quality Assurance's (NCQA) Level 3 recognition, the highest level achievable.
Also, CMOH is the first practice in Southeastern Pennsylvania to receive the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) certification from the American Society of Clinical Oncologists (ASCO).
More than just a concept
OPCMH is more than just a concept. It defines the care you receive as a CMOH patient. One important goal of OPCMH is to manage symptoms and treatment related issues effectively and efficiently, keeping patients out of the emergency room and hospital as much as possible.
CMOH has demonstrated that the patient centered approach works, significantly improving communications and access to care when needed in a way that effectively reduces ER visits and hospital admissions.
CMOH also adheres to nationally recognized standards of care and treatment guidelines, assuring that every patient receives state of the art treatment.
