 First Ever Patient Care Specialty for Autism in New Britain

The Autism center at Hospital for special care  located in New Britain and Hartford is recognized as a first-ever Patient-Centered Specialty Practice for Autism Spectrum Disorder by The National Committee for Quality Assurance. 

The NCQA said the designation means the hospital is committed to access, communication and care coordination.


Jennifer Bogin, who directs the autism program at the Department of Developmental Services, said the designation was important recognition for the work of the center, and the people associated with it.

Governor Dannel Malloy acknowledged  hospital officials for having been named the nation's first Patient-Centered Specialty Practice for Autism Spectrum Disorder.

In 2013, the center received a $3.6 million state grant for an electronic medical records system that was required for the specialty designation.

NCQA certifies patient-centered medical homes, which are focused on primary care and have a coordinated, results-based model similar to that of accountable care organizations.
