Each benchmark set by Oregon’s Patient Centered Primary Care Home Program is given a point value. The Corvallis Clinic surpassed the minimum amount of points needed to earn a Tier 3 (3 STAR) recognition, the highest a clinic can achieve, based on 2014 standards.
The Oregon Health Authority defines a Patient-Centered Primary Care Home as follows:
“Patient-Centered Primary Care Homes are health care clinics that have been recognized by the Oregon Health Authority for their commitment to providing high quality, patient-centered care. At its heart, this model of care fosters strong relationships with patients and their families to better care for the whole person. Primary care homes reduce costs and improve care by catching problems early, focusing on prevention, wellness, and managing chronic conditions.”
