WASHINGTON, DC—The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) today announced that Advocate Dreyer Medical Clinic located in Aurora and surrounding suburbs in Illinois has received NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long‐term, participative relationships.
