Comprehensive Primary Care Plus

Mountainside Medical Center’s Family Practice Group was selected to participate in track two of the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) program. This is a national advanced primary care medical home model, tested under the authority of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center), which aims to strengthen primary care through reform and care delivery transformation. CPC+ is a five-year model that includes two primary care practice tracks with incrementally advanced care delivery requirements to meet the diverse needs of primary care practices in the United States. CPC+ aims to improve patients’ health and quality of care and decrease total cost of care.

This distinguished certification indicates that our office is a healthcare setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients, their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient’s family. We deliver care when and where patients need and want it in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner.
