Discover PCMH

Discover how the PCMH model can help your practice provide higher quality healthcare, improve operational efficiency, and involve your patients in their care.

Fundamental ideas behind the Patient-Centered Medical Home Model of Care:

  • The program aims to lower costs, enhance the care experience, and maximize health outcomes
  • The person is at the core of this model and is treated with a holistic approach
  • The person is a partner in the healthcare setting which focuses on their experience

What makes Connecticut’s Person-Centered Medical Home Program Unique?

  • The program offers financial incentives for 18-24 months while the practice is on the Glide Path working towards NCQA PCMH recognition with a Community Practice Transformation Specialist (CPTS). This excludes FQHC practices
    • Those incentives increase when the practice receives NCQA PCMH Recognition
  • The CPTS team is knowledgeable and experienced in assisting practices with resources to work towards recognition at no cost
  • The CPTS continues to work with the practice after recognition, assisting with the practice’s renewal at no cost
  • The CPTS Team is available to assist FQHC’s with The Joint Commission PCMH certification or NCQA PCMH recognition at no cost
