NCQA's Advanced PCMH Online Course: Mastering the Medical Home Transformation

The NCQA PCMH Recognition program plays an integral role in practice transformation and improving the quality of health care. 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. It takes a hands-on approach to each PCMH Concept, and a deeper dive to explore the key characteristics of a successful medical home.

This course will review evidence to support the core and elective criteria. It will also focus on advanced topics such as the Distinction Modules, electronic Clinical Quality Measures, and how to receive autocredit. 

What You Will Learn

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.  
  • 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.
