11.15.2012 Differentiating Between Programs If an organization measures and takes action on both primary care and for specialty care practitioners where the methodology and actions are the same but the measures vary by specialty, is this one or more program?

In general, if an organization has a measure set in which a subset of the measures apply only to some specialties (broadly including primary care as a specialty), where the methodology and actions are the same (e.g. public reporting in the same manner regardless of specialty), NCQA treats that as one program. However, if there is more than one action (e.g. public reporting, P4P), we may count them as two programs (a public reporting program and P4P program).
