NCQA invites you to comment on the updated Patient-Centered Connected CareTM recognition program.  

NCQA Patient-Centered Connected Care Recognition was built from the medical home model of care, and identifies how sites delivering infrequent or outpatient treatment—urgent care centers, retail clinics, worksite health clinics and others—communicate and connect with primary care and fit into the medical home “neighborhood.”

NCQA proposes the following updates: 

Allow for flexibility and ongoing quality improvement by:

  • Modifying the recognition requirements and process to align with other NCQA recognition programs with core and elective criteria.
  • Encouraging continuous quality improvement through Annual Reporting.

Add distinctions for specific types of practices: telehealth, onsite/ worksite clinics, urgent care and retail clinics. Distinctions would include criteria that apply to these types of practices only.
