NCQA has recently evaluated their Patient Centered Medical Home and Specialty Practice recognition programs. After the review, they are making some significant changes to both programs, as shared below:
- Beginning in 2024, PCMH and PCSP practices will be required to use an electronic health record (EHR).
- Beginning in 2024, standardized measures will be required for PCMH (reporting period 1.1.23 – 12.31.23).
- Some standardized measures may pose challenges to some, so NCQA will allow organizations to submit a request for custom measure(s).
- Organizations will also be allowed to submit a request for exceptions to calendar year reporting on a case-by-case basis.
