Introduction to PCMH: Foundational Concepts of the Medical Home

April 18-19 | Syracuse, NY

About the Program

This program was formerly named Facilitating PCMH 2014 Recognition. More than 11,000 NCQA-Recognized Patient-Centered Medical Homes practices and almost 53,000 recognized clinicians have proved the strong relevance of the NCQA PCMH Standards to the Triple Aim. The 2014 standards emphasizes team-based care with a significant focus on the care management of high-risk populations along with the integration of behavioral health. We have aligned the Quality Improvement (QI) activities with the Triple Aim and positioned the NCQA requirements to qualify for Meaningful Use Stage 2.

Join us for a thorough review of the PCMH 2014 standards. We’ll practice scoring elements and examining documentation that supports an application towards becoming a recognized patient centered medical home with NCQA.

At the conclusion of this educational program, the participant will be able to:
  • Identify the Must-Pass elements of a recognized patient-centered medical home (PCMH)
  • Explain the measurement and documentation criteria for the medical home model 
  • Describe processes and procedures that demonstrate the transformation of a practice towards a medical home model
  • Discuss scoring for each element 
  • Create strategies for improving processes necessary for becoming a recognized PCMH
  • Examine challenging aspects of the requirements in a variety of practice environments
Seats are limited. Early registration is highly recommended. This seminar tends to sell out quickly. Please note: A seat is not secured until payment is received and processed by NCQA.
