Little Falls, NY – Little Falls Hospital, part of the Bassett Healthcare Network, is pleased to announce that Paul Campbell, MA, RN, has been certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as Patient-Centered Medical Home Certified Content Expert (CCE). This certification comes after the completion of two NCQA educational seminars and passing a comprehensive exam. His two-year certification became effective on February 6.
“Paul’s certification as a PCMH content expert is quite an accomplishment that brings an increased level of expertise to our organization,” said Heidi Camardello, CNO, VP of patient care at Little Falls Hospital. “His in-depth knowledge will assist us in implementing innovative and improved primary care models while working within the standards established by the NCQA.”
According to NCQA, the PCMH is a healthcare setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient’s family. Care is facilitated by registries, information technology, health information exchange and other means to assure that patients get the indicated care when and where they need and want it in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner.
“Certified NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Content Experts receive thorough training and demonstrate in-depth knowledge to assist organizations applying for NCQA PCMH Recognition,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane.
Campbell lives in Little Falls and has two daughters, Caeli and Audrey.
