Excerpt from the website:
"NCQA’s Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) 2011 is an innovative program for improving primary care. In a set of standards that describe clear and specific criteria, the program gives practices information about organizing care around patients, working in teams and coordinating and tracking care over time. The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home standards strengthen and add to the issues addressed by NCQA’s original program.
The Patient Centered Medical Home is a health care 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."

Electronic Medical Records and Prescriptions
Dr. Hayden has been using electronic medical records since 1997.
He has been sending prescriptions electronically since 2006.
Meaningful Use Certification
We are using SOAPWare 2012, a CCHIT-certified EMR which provides a foundation to the "Meaningful Use" designation of an Electronic Medical Record.
Our EMR has been certified by Medicare in Meaningful Use for the years 2011 & 2012.
Through integration with Surescripts, prescriptions are sent electronically to the pharmacy or Pharmacy-benefits manager of your choice.
Through integration with CurrentCare, we are now able to receive the Emergency Room record, or Lab or XRay results from many facilities in Rhode Island for our patients, and incorporate them directly into their Electronic Record.
If you have not already signed on to CurrentCare, please ask one of our office staff, we will be happy to assist you in signing up for this valuable service.
This promises to be an exciting phase in the exchange of medical information and the overall care of our patients.
We are able to securely send results to our patients via secure portal that is associated with our electronic medical record. However, since security is still an issue for email communication, we are not participating in two-way email communication for medical issues.
