How Health IT Works to Support Patient-Centered Medical Home
A HITEQ Highlights Webinar
The intent of NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) continues to be recognition of primary care practice models that have achieved a mature level of transformation toward improving population health; improving the experience of care for both patient and provider; and reducing the cost of care through greater efficiencies of integrated patient-centered care coordination. The redesigned process uniquely positions practices, staff and other key stakeholders to focus more on performance and quality improvement, and alignment with public and private initiatives in health care that reward value-based care.
During this webinar, we highlighted the NCQA PCMH Core and Elective criteria. We also focused on advanced topics such as the Distinction Modules and eCQMs, and then ended the learning session by taking a deeper dive to discuss the integral role pre-validated health IT plays in practice transformation and physician alignment with public and private payer programs that reward for value-based care.
