NCQA’s Advanced PCMH Program: Mastering the Medical Home Transformation

This advanced course is intended for individuals who have applied NCQA PCMH Recognition requirements in the practice setting. It examines the PCMH standards and the assessment process. Participants will take a deeper dive to each PCMH Concept and explore the key characteristics of a successful medical home in this hands-on program.

Faculty and participants will discuss evidence to support the core and elective criteria. The program also focuses on advanced topics such as the Distinction Modules, transfer credit and program benefits.  Attendees will participate in facilitated activities that demonstrate how earning elective credits builds upon the Core criteria of a Competency. Our faculty will incorporate topics on behavioral health integration, the importance of assessing the social determinants of patient health, engaging with patients and the community, and continuous quality improvement.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the program, participants will have the knowledge they need to:

  • Discuss transfer credit and distinctions.
  • Explain how elective criteria build upon core criteria within a competency.
  • Examine opportunities and approaches to succeed in the PCMH model of care.
  • Determine a strategy for preparing a practice for the three (3) virtual check-ins and begin to create a transformation plan.
  • Describe the types of evidence a practice can provide to meet the intent of a criterion, competency, and concept.
