National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model of care where a primary care provider facilitates and coordinates the patient’s healthcare needs with other healthcare professionals. Research shows that PCMH practices improve quality, patient experience and staff satisfaction, and reduce healthcare costs. The NCQA PCMH Recognition program is the most widely adopted Patient-Centered Medical Home evaluation program in the country. By earning NCQA PCMH recognition, your practice demonstrates a commitment to patient-centered care and quality improvement. This results in patients that are happier, healthier, and more satisfied with their experience.
