KENTUCKY REGIONAL EXTENSION CENTER

Patient-Centered Medical Home

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition program provides a roadmap for achieving excellence in patient care. This national model for practice transformation helps practices improve in areas of patient-centeredness, access, communication, care coordination, quality, and efficiency. According to an Agency for Research and Quality meta-analysis of the evidence, the patient centered medical home model has shown promising improvements in quality of care as well as patient and caregiver experience while also showing reductions in unnecessary hospital and ED use.

In addition to the benefits in delivery of patient care, PCMH Recognition will earn your practice full points in the Improvement Activities category of the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System under MACRA/QPP. PCMH is also rewarded by some payers in Kentucky.

The Kentucky REC is prepared to assist practices with achieving and maintaining NCQA’s PCMH Recognition through a transformation program that includes education, gap analyses, action plans, documentation review and feedback, advice on overcoming transformation barriers, guidance on application and submission process.

Contact the Kentucky REC today for more information or take our readiness assessment below.
