About the Seminar

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.

Additionally, a special discussion will be held for New York State attendees and others interested in learning about the New York State Patient-Centered Medical Home (NYS PCMH) Recognition Program. Participants will be able to hear first-hand and ask questions about this exclusive model developed based on the NCQA PCMH model, which supports the state’s initiative to improve primary care and promote the Triple Aim: better health, lower costs and better patient experience.

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 the program, participants will have the knowledge they need to:

• Identify the core attributes of patient-centered medical homes.

• Identify required evidence and determine how to present it.

• Describe processes and procedures that demonstrate transformation into the medical home model.

• Understand the roles of the NCQA Representative and Evaluator and CCE. 

• Examine the challenging requirements in a variety of practice environments.

Who Should Attend
