Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition Program

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model of care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into "what patients want it to be".   NCQA PCMH Recognition is the most widely adopted model for transforming primary care practices into medical homes. Research confirms medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patients’ and providers’ experience of care. Practices will demonstrate that they align with recognition requirements by submitting data and documentation on these critical aspects of PCMH:

  • Patient-centered access
  • Team-based care
  • Population health management
  • Care Management
  • Care coordination and care transitions
  • Performance measurement and quality improvement
  • Special topics, such as behavioral health (optional)

 

As a Partner in Quality with the NCQA, RMHP serves as a resource and provides support for practices who are working on their submission for PCMH recognition.
