Recognition Redesign: Transitioning to the New Process

NCQA redesigned the PCMH Recognition program based on feedback from practices, policy makers, payers and other stakeholders. The redesigned process makes the program more manageable, while continuing to concentrate on performance and quality improvement. It also reduces paperwork and increases practice interaction with NCQA. Learn more about the redesigned process.
