Our History

“Nhan Hoa” translates to “harmony among people,” and through harmony and hard work, the staff and volunteers at NH strive to meet our mission.

Federally Qualified Health Center

What is a health center?

Health centers under the Health Services & Resources Administration (HRSA) are community-based and patient-directed organizations that deliver comprehensive, culturally competent, high-quality primary health care services. We deliver care to the Nation’s most vulnerable individuals and families.

program fundamentals

  • Deliver high quality, culturally competent, comprehensive care and services such as health education, translation, and transportation that promote access to health care.
  • Provide services regardless of patients’ ability to pay and charge for services on a sliding fee scale.
  • Develop systems of patient-centered and integrated care that respond to the unique needs of diverse medically under-served areas and populations.

How health centers work

Health centers overcome geographic, cultural, linguistic, and other barriers to care by delivering coordinated and comprehensive primary and preventive services. This care reduces health disparities by emphasizing care management of patients with multiple health care needs.

Patient Centered Medical Home

“NCQA Patient-Centered Specialty Practice Recognition distinguishes practices that communicate, collaborate and integrate care in ways that patients want and that improve quality. I commend the team at Nhan Hoa for its achievement, and for its commitment to continuous improvement.” – Margaret E. O’Kane, NCQA President

NH Health Center is proud to be recognized as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee fir Quality Assurance (NCQA). As a practice that has earned PCMH recognition, we have implemented a patient-centered approach to care and are continuously committed to improving quality and bringing value to our patients. Our care team provides quality health services that promote better health for our patients.

High fragmentation is associated with higher costs, lower quality, and higher rates of preventable hospitalizations. Practices that earn NCQA PCMH recognition are acknowledged as providing care associated with higher quality, better patient satisfaction and a reduction of avoidable, costly ED and hospital visits.

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.

HEDIS: One of the tools the NCQA uses to measure quality is the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS), which is used by health plans, health care providers, regulators, and consumers to evaluate performance in terms of clinical quality and customer service. HEDIS is composed of 92 measures covering 6 categories of care. It evaluates how often people get preventive care and also whether people with chronic conditions are getting the care to keep them healthy. Most importantly, HEDIS is an evaluation of whether health care providers are effectively and efficiently utilizing their resources.

CAHPS: Another tool the NCQA uses is the Consumer Assessment of Health Plans Survey (CAHPS), which asks patients about their experience of care. CAHPS measures the members’ satisfaction with the health plan, provider accessibility, patient-provider relationship, and communication.
