Practice Transformation Institute’s Lisa Allen, RN, BSN, and Carla Irvin, RN, BSN, braved the hot, humid weather of Austin, Texas to attend training on NCQA’s Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition Program. With the comprehensive knowledge they gained about the requirements, application process and documentation of the NCQA PCMH Recognition Program, they can now help practices work toward this important national achievement.
With over 6000 recognized practices in nearly every state, NCQA’s PCMH Recognition Program is the most sought after and widely accepted PCMH program in the nation. Becoming NCQA recognized requires deliberate strategies and efforts in transforming a practice into a medical home.
NCQA is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality located in Washington, D.C. They are committed to providing health care quality information for consumers, purchasers, health care providers and researchers.
