How NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Homes Address Disparities

National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMHs) transform primary care practices into a central place to receive high-quality, personalized care. This person-centered approach improves quality, reduces costs and improves the experience of receiving health care.

This paper describes how NCQA PCMH standards can help practices build capacity to address disparities by:

  • Assessing patient populations for disparities and the factors that drive them,
  • Linking affected patients to community and other resources to address those factors, and
  • Tracking progress on goals to reduce disparities and ultimately eliminate them.
