What Does R&B's Patient-Centered Accreditation Mean?

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is a private, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality.

Since its founding in 1990, NCQA has been a central figure in driving improvement throughout the health care system, helping to elevate the issue of health care quality to the top of the national agenda.

The NCQA seal is a widely recognized symbol of quality. R&B Medical Group has achieved this distinction by passing a rigorous, comprehensive review. We must annually report on our performance to maintain this accreditation.

The seal recognizes practices that provide care coordination and communication to transform primary care into "what patients want it to be."   

For you, the patient, this seal is a reliable indicator that an organization is well-managed and delivers high quality care and service.
