KENTUCKY REGIONAL EXTENSION CENTER

ncqaIt’s always nice to hear positive feedback from our clients. Here is a testimonial by one of our client practices that participated in our Patient Centered Specialty Practice (PCSP) program.

“Kentucky REC has been one of the best learning environments and innovative programs I have encountered throughout this healthcare transformation journey that effectively met the needs and improved our organization. I was impressed with how quickly they implemented suggestions from feedback to make our continued learning process truly catered to the needs of the cohort. Our advisors are always so positive and encouraging even if we simply needed a supportive voice to motivate. Our advisors were readily available to answer any question we had or to promptly get questions answered, communicate changes, navigate some of those changes alongside us, and cultivated a trusting relationship with our practice to overcome any barriers or challenges we encountered. Through the Kentucky REC, we were able to apply PCSP principles in ways that were meaningful to our organization, our staff, and the patients we serve.”

The Patient-Centered Specialty Practice (PCSP) is a National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) recognition program that extends the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) concepts to specialists. Specialty practices committed to access, communication and care coordination can earn accolades as the “neighbors” that surround and inform the medical home and colleagues in primary care.

Our new PCSP Cohort will begin on August 4th and the next PCMH Cohort will begin on September 22nd. Please let us know if you would like to join or would like to request additional information. The cohort framework is designed to accelerate your journey to NCQA PCSP Recognition within a 14-16 month period. Through our expert training, coaching, and resources, your staff will be well-prepared to carry out the practice transformation process.

By receiving recognition as a PCSP, your organization will receive full points in the Improvement Activities category of the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).
