PCMH: Care Coordination and Care Transitions (CC)
A Look Inside PCMH Concept: Care Coordination and Care Transitions (CC)
NCQA's PCMH Recognition program has evolved to feature a set of six concepts that make up a medial home. Underlying these concepts are criteria (activities for which a practice must demonstrate adequate performance to obtain NCQA PCMH Recognition) developed from evidence-based guidelines and best practices.
This self-paced module focuses on Care Coordination & Care Transitions (CC). The intent of the CC concept is to ensure that there are processes and connections in place to ensure proper tracking of patient orders and referrals. It also focuses on the exchange of information between providers and between the practice and other settings of care. It's essential to coordinate care transitions for patient safety and to ensure clear communication processes are in place so that patient needs are addressed promptly and efficiently. Avoiding duplication of services with comprehensive, coordinated patient care moves the practice in the direction of the high quality, cost effective outcomes sought by patients and payers alike.
For an overview of all 6 PCMH Concepts, please refer to the "A Look Inside the 6 PCMH Concepts: A Comprehensive Overview" course.
This program is designed for any health care professional, health care decision maker or consultant who needs a detailed explanation of the Care Coordination & Care Transition concept of the PCMH Medical Home Recognition standards and guidelines. It is intended for, but not limited to:
- Practice care teams
- Practice managers
At the conclusion of the module, participants will have the knowledge they need to:
- Discuss the format of PCMH requirements, the virtual check-in process and the transformation journey.
- Outline core and elective criteria for Care Coordination and Care Transition (CC).
- Explain how CC is scored using scoring criteria within the standards and guidelines.
- Discuss examples that meet core criteria and electives.
