NCQA responds to AAFP member concerns about PCMH recognition

Family Medicine SmartBrief | Feb 23, 2015

With feedback from the AAFP, the National Committee for Quality Assurance will be making changes to its recognition process for patient-centered medical homes. Planned changes include the assignment of an NCQA navigator to assist physicians through the process, submission of information at intervals rather than at the end of the process, and sustained recognition that will not require renewal if certain information is provided on an annual basis.
