NCQA's Advanced PCMH Program: Mastering the Medical Home Transformation
This advanced course is intended for individuals who have applied NCQA PCMH Recognition requirements in the practice setting. It examines the PCMH standards and the assessment process. Participants will take a deeper dive to each PCMH Concept and explore the key characteristics of a successful medical home in this hands-on program.

Faculty and participants will discuss evidence to support the core and elective criteria. The program also focuses on advanced topics such as the Distinction Modules, transfer credit and program benefits. Attendees will participate in facilitated activities that demonstrate how earning elective credits builds upon the Core criteria of a Competency. Our faculty will incorporate topics on behavioral health integration, the importance of assessing the social determinants of patient health, engaging with patients and the community, and continuous quality improvement.
