Quality Reporting

Become a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)

As a pediatric practice, you already know what it means to serve as a patient’s medical home. Now it’s time to get recognized by the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA) for the added value you bring to your patients – and boost your revenue at the same time.

If you’re thinking about applying for PCMH recognition, OP Medical Home (OPMH) reports will make your submission much easier to assemble. OPMH compiles reports across the concepts, competencies and criteria as defined by the official NCQA standards, such as:

  • Average time for telephone and email responses
  • Same-day access
  • Care Management
  • Follow up on newborn screenings
  • Assessment of language needs
  • Quality improvement
  • Reports filtered by date range, provider or location

Recognition in medical home programs is often rewarded by payers. OPMH makes it possible to qualify for additional reimbursement from any payer that accepts NCQA’s PCMH Recognition or participates in a pay-for-performance program.

Office Practicum version 20 is pre-validated by NCQA to receive autocredit towards NCQA PCMH 2017 scoring. Clients seeking NCQA PCMH 2017 Recognition who actively utilize the reviewed capabilities are eligible for transfer of the awarded autocredit – further shortening your application process!
