What it means to receive the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition
The Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of care that puts patients at the forefront of care. PCMHs build better relationships between people and their clinical care teams. Research shows that they improve quality, the patient experience and staff satisfaction, while reducing health care costs.
NCQA’s Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition Program is the most widely adopted Patient-Centered Medical Home evaluation program in the country. More than 12,000 practices (with more than 60,000 clinicians) are recognized by NCQA. And more than 100 payers support NCQA recognition through financial incentives or coaching.
Practices that earn recognition through NCQA, have made a commitment to quality improvement within their practice and a patient-centered approach, to care that results in patients that are happier and healthier.
The NCQA is a private, non-profit organization whose goal is to improve the healthcare system in the United States. NCQA ACO Accreditation Level 2 are for organizations demonstrating well-established capabilities outlined in the standards to meet the triple aim of better patient experience, better health and lower per capita cost. The length of status is 3 years.
Becoming a patient-centered medical home is just one of the many ways we are striving to give our patients the best possible health care.
