PCMH Prevalidation Program

NCQA’s Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Prevalidation program evaluates electronic health record (EHR) systems, advanced registries, population health management tools and other related technology solutions to identify alignment with PCMH standards requirements.

Vendors with PCMH prevalidated products have successfully demonstrated their technology solution has functionality that completely meet one or more factor level requirements within the PCMH standards. The evaluation can result in approved automatic credit (autocredit) scores that are transferable to eligible client practices submitting for PCMH Recognition. Practices that use PCMH Prevalidated products will benefit from reduced documentation support, saving time and alleviating some of the administrative burden associated with meeting PCMH survey requirements.

NCQA encourages inquiring practices to undergo a complete consultation of all PCMH related functionality with vendors who have NCQA prevalidated products. Prevalidated product functionality in most cases extend significantly beyond those awarded autocredit.
