NCQA’s Michael Barr, MD, on the New PCMH Recognition Program

Steering Committee Member Michael S. Barr, MD, MBA, MACP, Executive Vice President, Quality Measurement and Research Group, speaks on NCQA’s improved PCMH Recognition Program and what it means for practices, patients, and healthcare.


NCQA PCMH Recognition Redesign Overview

The new recognition process has three parts:

Commit. The practice completes a self-assessment before committing to transformation and the recognition process. When the practice commits, it works with the assigned NCQA representative to conduct an online assessment and develop an evaluation plan and schedule.

Transform. Practices gradually transform, building on successes. During this time, they show their progress by submitting documentation and data to NCQA through a new system designed to reduce paperwork and administrative hassles.

Along the way, NCQA conducts virtual reviews—online check-ins—with the practice to gauge progress and discuss next steps in the evaluation. The virtual check-ins, which are conducted online via screen-sharing technology, provide the practice with immediate and personalized feedback on what is going well and what needs to improve. Evaluation is now more educational and collaborative.

Succeed. The practice continues to implement and enhance its PCMH model to improve how it meets the needs of patients. Each year, the practice checks in with NCQA to show that its ongoing activities are consistent with the PCMH model of care. The annual check-in includes attesting to certain policies and procedures and the submission of key data. This process will sustain the practice’s recognition. Better yet, it’s designed to foster continuous improvement. That means the practice succeeds in strengthening its transformation, and as a result, patient care.
