These past few months have been very busy for many of our Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and Patient-Centered Medical Specialty Practice (PCSP) clients, as they have been in the process of working toward their National Committee of Quality Assurance (NCQA) PCMH and PCSP Annual Renewal.

These practices achieved their initial recognition a few years ago by going through a practice transformation process in their organizations that builds a foundation for a patient-centered model of care that focuses on health care comprised of what patients want, along with the patients’ needs. These organizations work as a team, from clinicians to front desk staff, to coordinate care with other providers and outside community partners.

As a well-coordinated team, this model of care maximizes efficiency, and aids in managing more chronic patient populations within their practices, while it helps in lowering costs. The medical home model helps integrate a strong infrastructure toward the Quadruple Aim in healthcare, and also prepares practices for Value-Based healthcare today. We are so proud of the hard work all of our practices do for this wonderful accomplishment, and witness the value and benefits this brings to their communities’ lives.

On November 4th we hosted a webinar: “Choose Your Own Pathway Towards Practice Transformation” that discussed our exciting new advising options on how we can assist your practice integrate individual care models in your practice that are based-on the PMCH/PCSP model. Our individual modules include: Care Management, Care Coordination and Quality Improvement. These are the basis of necessary pieces to the Value-Based model of care puzzle, and are perfect for beginning the transformation process in your practice. They can be chosen individually and built upon to suit your practice. They will work well together or separately, even if you aren’t ready for full PCMH/PCSP recognition.
