PCMH Self-Assessment Tool (2017)

PCMH Self-Assessment Tool (2017)

NCQA's Patient Centered Medical Home 2017 Recognition

This 2017 Patient Centered Medical Home self-assessment is intended to help health centers gauge their readiness for meeting the NCQA 2017 PCMH Requirements. Of course, completing this does not guarantee passing PCMH recognition process, it is intended to help you assess and plan!

Download the Self Assessment in the Documents to Download section below. Instructions for use are at the top of the second tab.

Health centers should reference requirements from NCQA to ensure a complete understanding of the requirements prior to completing this self-assessment. Some helpful links are included below:

Review process: The review is now an interactive, multi-meeting process rather than a single submission. It is now comprised of three virtual reviews over 12 months. Generally, the first virtual meeting is to plan out the process together, the second meeting to start to review and validate and provide feedback, and third to continue to review and validate and discuss alternatives to those that could not be validated.

Changes: Under 2017 standards there is only one level of recognition, compared to three levels previously. New reporting platform called Q-Pass, and if a practice is working with a Certified Content Expert (CCE) then the CCE can access the system on behalf of the practice. Learn about accessing Q-Pass here.

Timeframe: Plan for 3 to 12 months to implement transformation processes. Most policies and procedures must be in place for 3 months in order to be meet the requirements, needs to be completed in 12 months. Must be reviewed annually as opposed to three-year recognition cycle.
