Advanced PCMH 2017: Succeeding in Medical Home Recognition

May 18 | Baltimore, MD

About the Program

The NCQA PCMH Recognition program plays an integral role in practice transformation and improving the quality of health care. This advanced course is intended for individuals who have applied NCQA PCMH Recognition requirements in the practice setting. It examines the PCMH 2017 standards and the redesigned assessment process. It takes a “project management” approach to the standards, and a deeper dive to explore the key characteristics of a successful medical home.

This course will discuss evidence to support the core and elective criteria; describe tools and provide resources for engaging a practice during recognition planning and “virtual check-ins”; and facilitate activities to demonstrate how a practice can create and maintain a culture of continuous quality improvement. We will incorporate topics on behavioral health integration, the importance of assessing social determinants of patient health, and engaging with patients and the community.

PLEASE NOTE: This course and Introduction to PCMH 2017: Foundational Concepts of the Medical Home are prerequisites for the NCQA PCMH Content Expert Certification exam.

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

  • Identify and address the opportunities and challenges to succeed in the PCMH model of care.
  • Establish and maintain a continuous quality improvement culture in a PCMH practice, extending to annual reporting after recognition.
  • Integrate vendor prevalidation, electronic clinical quality measurement, and certified electronic reporting to facilitate recognition and annual reporting.
  • Implement tools for all phases of the PCMH evaluation and sustaining processes.
  • Create strategies to prepare recognized practices for their annual reporting.
  • Identify opportunities for alignment with other NCQA Recognition programs and external initiatives.
