NCQA recognition for medical homes: What does it mean?
NCQA sets specific standards for primary care practices to use in organizing care around patients, working in teams and coordinating and tracking care over time. The criteria provide an excellent guide to reorganizing care delivery to create a PCMH. This type of healthcare setting facilitates partnerships between individual patients and their personal physicians — and when appropriate, the patient’s family. The PCMH practice uses registries, information technology, online patient portals and other means to ensure that patients get indicated care when and where they need it.
