Innovative Care Models FAQs
How do you know if a particular practice qualifies as a PCMH?
The major primary care physicians groups, along with the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), have developed a recognition process called the NCQA Physician Practice Connection--Patient-Center Medical Home (PPC-PCMH). This process ensures that a qualifying practice is able to deliver services consistent with the PCMH model of care. The PPC-PCMH assesses practice functions in the following areas: access and communication; patient tracking and registry functions; care management; patient self-management support; test tracking; referral tracking; performance reporting and improvement and advance electronic communications. This recognition process delineates among three levels of the PCMH (basic, intermediate and advanced) with each level reflecting a different degree of PCMH service capability.
