As I See It The much an- ticipated con- struction of Cen- tral Square Park will begin in early Fall, according to Boston City Councilor Sal LaMattina ... Many people in Boston are feeling sad over Mayor Menino leaving office as Mayor of Boston. After 20 years of dedicated service to his beloved city, the Mayor made a tough decision not to run another term after his health began failing. Accord- ing to his constituents, the Mayor has done great things for Boston and was very devoted to the city making improvement after improve- ment in the city he ran. His legacy to East Boston is many things, the park that should begin construction soon, the waterfront develop- ment, more open space and the list goes on. His political views at times seemed to be a bit over the edge in liber- alism, but he managed to please the public at large most of the time. Now there's a list of candidates vying for the position. Who can fill his shoes? There is one candi- date voters are taking an interest in. His name is Dis- trict Attorney Dan Conley. His understanding of crime, his compassion for the city and his ability to get the job done makes him one of the most suitable candidates. However, State Rep. Carlo Basile pulling his support away from Conley is justifi- able. The nod for a casino built at Suffolk Downs belongs to East Boston and Revere voters. They are the ones that will be impacted by traffic, not all of Boston. So Conley's thoughts of a Boston at-Large vote for the casino is rubbish. If mitiga- tion and other concerns don't get resolved quickly, Suffolk could lose to Steve Winn for a casino in Everett ... Gov- ernor Deval Patrick has done a bang up job keeping Mas- sachusetts a Welfare State, and forcing working people to exit the state. Patrick's mis- management and veto of EBT Card reform is disgust- ing. The Governor did every- thing in his power to stop the Secure Communities Pro- gram that deports criminal illegal immigrants. Legisla- tors passed the prohibition on in-state tuition rates for illegal immigrants. And of course, Patrick never acknowledged the legisla- tion and in-state tuition for illegal immigrants contin- ues. He is known to weigh in on the side of the crimi- nals over victims by trying to eliminate mandatory sen- tencing requirements for habitual offenders. He's a real piece of work and his leadership in Massachusetts is a joke. And if there's any truth to Deval Patrick filling in for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holders job (another loser) Obama is really bent on destroying this country ... Another piece of work is U.S. Senator, Elizabeth Warren, who is standing by her man "Barack Obama," despite three serious allega- tions against the president. "Internal Service agents tar- geting of conservatives, The Justice Department's secret media probe and the circum- stances surrounding U.S. Ambassador to Libya in Ben- ghazi. Liz continues to de- fend Barack! ... East Boston's own and former Boston City Councilor at-Large and cur- rent Suffolk University Administrator, John Nucci is writing columns in the Bos- ton Herald on the mayoral race. The message John Nucci is saying, is a fact. Whether you live in Boston or the suburbs the next elected Mayor of Boston can have an effect on you, if you work and have a stake in Boston ... Motorists double park on Benning- ton Street, exit their cars with no regard for other driv- ers that want to get by! Only in East Boston are drivers so arrogant! ... Bicyclists are ~v- erywhere so motorist need to be vigilant, while bicyclists need to respect motorists. This will avoid unnecessary accidents ... Pools are open and barbecues are out. After a long miserable winter, people are looking forward to some summer fun ... Till next time!

East Boston Neighborhood Health Center Receives Highest Level of A Recognition Program Improves Coordination of Care in the Community The East Boston Neighbor- hood Health Center (EBNHC) today announced it received the highest level of recog- nition from the National Committee for Quality As- surance (NCQA) for its Patient-Centered Medical Home Program (PCMH), which promotes care coordi- nation. The NCQA awarded EBNHC a Level Three PCMH distinction, indicating that the Center met the high- est standards, which empha- size the use of systematic, patient-centered, coordi- nated care that supports access, communications and patient involvement. "We're thrilled to achieve this outstanding accom- plishment that reinforces the high quality of care we provide to our patients," said Manny Lopes, CEO of the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center. "This Pro- gram enhances the partner- ship between patients and providers, while encourag- ing patients to actively par- ticipate in their own health care. This recognition is a testament to the efforts of our staff and providers to transform clinical care and -ensure the best outcomes for all." EBNHC's Patient-Centered Medical Home Program, en- ables the primary care phy- sician to coordinate all of the patient's health care needs, which includes visits to specialty providers, hospital admissions, reminding pa- tients about necessary tests and check-ups and elec- tronically sending prescrip- tions directly to the phar- macy. This model promotes better coordination and col- laboration between health care providers and uses health information technol- ogy to monitor, evaluate and manage care. The Patient- Centered Medical Home Program is also used to co- ordinate and manage care for patients with chronic dis- eases and complex medical needs. Medical home is one of the key underpinnings of federal health reform, since coordi- nated care generally leads to better, more appropriate and more cost-effective care. "The NCQA Patient-Cen- tered Medical Home is a model of 21st century pri- mary care that combines access, teamwork and tech- nology to deliver quality care and improve health," said NCQA President Margaret E. O'Kane. "NCQA's PCMH Recognition shows that the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center has tools, systems, and resources to provide their patients with the right care at the right time." EBNHC initiated the Pa- tient-Centered Medical Home Program in 2010, af- ter being selected by the state's Executive Office of Health and Human Ser- vices, as one of 46 primary care practices across the Commonwealth to partici- pate in the Patient-Cen- tered Medical Home Initia- tive. The Patient-Centered Medical Home model aims to improve the quality and efficiency of primary care and reduce costs by avoiding unnecessary hospital read- missions and emergency department visits and en- suring that patients receive the comprehensive care they need.
