Introduction to the NCQA Patient-Centered Specialty Practice Recognition Program

May 19 | Baltimore, MD 

About the Program

This program is an in-depth guide to NCQA Recognition requirements and the process for achieving PCMH recognition. Recognized practices and clinicians have proved the relevance of the NCQA PCMH standards to the Triple Aim. The 2017 standards emphasize a practice wide commitment to sustaining the PCMH transformation, demonstrating patient care and population health management, care coordination and ongoing quality improvement.

Practices are rewarded for integrating behavioral healthcare and addressing the impact of social determinants on patient needs. NCQA requirements are positioned to qualify for the Merit-Based Incentive Performance System (MIPS) Clinical Practice Improvement Activities (CPIA) and to support other MIPS requirements under MACRA.

Join us for this thorough review of the PCMH 2017 requirements and the documentation needed to support an application for NCQA Recognition.

At the conclusion of this program, you will be able to:

  • Identify the core attributes of patient-centered medical homes.
  • Identify required documentation and determine how to present it.
  • Describe processes and procedures that demonstrate transformation into the medical home model.
  • Work with an assigned NCQA Representative on a plan to earn recognition.
  • Examine the more challenging aspects of the requirements in a variety of practice environments.
