West Conshohocken, PA (May 2, 2023) – Tandigm Health, a leading population health services organization, has earned two-year Case Management Accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for its Complex Care Management (CCM) Program.
NCQA is dedicated to improving health care quality by accrediting and certifying a wide range of health care organizations. NCQA Accreditation standards are developed with input from researchers in the field, the Case Management Expert Panel and standing committees, employers, both purchasers and operators of Case Management programs, state and federal regulators and other experts. NCQA Accreditation standards are purposely set high to encourage organizations to continuously enhance their quality.
Tandigm, founded in 2014, has delivered consistently strong results through its value-based care model. This model rewards healthcare providers that most effectively improve quality and control costs for both individual consumers and group purchasers, while simultaneously rewarding those whose services are rated most highly by consumers. Tandigm serves a network of primary care doctors in the greater Philadelphia region and contracts with payors such as Independence Blue Cross, Humana, and the federal government’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Tandigm’s Complex Care Management (CCM) Program supports select patients with a team of interdisciplinary clinicians who help coordinate the care plan prescribed by a physician through home visits, telephonic support, and transition care. The CCM team supports patients who are transitioning from facilities, as well as those who need longer-term support, by assisting with complex social, psychological, and medical needs.
“It is a great honor to receive NCQA Accreditation for our work providing specialized care to patients with complex needs,” said Frank Ingari, CEO Tandigm Health. “Our team takes pride in adhering to NCQA’s rigorous standards that demand continuous quality improvement in our efforts to serve patients, support clinicians and meet the needs of our payors.”
“Case Management Accreditation moves us closer to measuring quality across population health management initiatives,” said Margaret E. O’Kane, President, NCQA. “Not only does it add value to existing quality improvement efforts; it also demonstrates an organization’s commitment to the highest degree of improving the quality of their patients’ care.”
