Advanced PCMH: Mastering the Medical Home Transformation

Date: Thursday, November 21, 2019
Check-in Time: 7:30 am - 8:00 am
Training Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

CPCA is pleased to host the HRSA Sponsored Region IX NCQA Trainings in partnership with the Arizona Alliance for Community Health Centers, Nevada Primary Care Association, Hawaii Primary Care Association, Pacific Island Primary Care Association, Community Clinic Association of Los Angeles County, and the Redwood Community Health Coalition.

The NCQA PCMH Recognition program plays an integral role in practice transformation and improving the quality of health care. This advanced course is intended for individuals who have applied NCQA PCMH Recognition requirements in the practice setting. It examines the PCMH 2017 standards and the redesigned assessment process. It takes a hands-on approach to each PCMH Concept, and a deeper dive to explore the key characteristics of a successful medical home.

This course will discuss evidence to support the core and elective criteria. It will also focus on advanced topics such as the Distinction Modules, electronic Clinical Quality Measures, and how to receive autocredit. 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.
