The PCSP Recognition Process
To become an NCQA-Recognized PCSP, a specialty practice learns the PCSP concepts and required criteria and begins the transformation process. Follow these guidelines if you are seeking PCSP Recognition for the first time. Learn more about the redesigned PCSP.
Apply Concepts To Your Practice
Implement changes in your practice that align with the PCSP concepts.
Once enrolled, NCQA assigns a representative to guide your practice through the recognition process.Expand
Your Representative will schedule an initial call to introduce themselves, discuss the process and develop a review schedule of up to three check-ins over the course of your transformation work.
If you have more than one site, your representative can provide you guidance on setting up site groups and sharing evidence across sites.
Apply PCSP Criteria to the Practice
Implement changes in your practice that align with PCSP criteria.Expand
Decide which requirements you want to submit and how you want to demonstrate evidence.
Use Q-PASS to upload evidence (such as policies and procedures). You may demonstrate other requirements in real time during the virtual review through screen-sharing technology. Screen-sharing technology eliminates the need to upload documentation in advance.
Practices have up to 3 virtual reviews using screen-sharing technology.Expand
Virtual reviews allow you to share your screen to show you meet NCQA PCMH requirements instead of submitting documentation.
Virtual reviews give immediate and personalized feedback on what is going well and what needs to improve. Learn what to expect during the virtual review.
NCQA reviews the submission one last time and notifies practices of their recognition status.Expand
Once notified of recognition, practices go into Q-PASS and print their Recognition Certificate.
