Partners Achieve Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition

Posted · Add Comment

Partner organizations throughout Care Compass Network’s (CCN) nine-county region have been working toward becoming PCMH 2014 Level 3 recognized, transforming their primary care sites to fit the certification requirements put forth by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

According to a report by the New York State Department of Health that was released in December 2016, our region had about 7.5% of the attributed practice sites listed has PCMH sites. Part of the NYS Medicaid Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program requires eligible providers to become PCMH recognized or have NYS Advanced Primary Care Certification by March 31, 2018. This initiative, among several others, work toward delivering more integrated, coordinated, and patient-centered care, particularly for the Medicaid population.

CCN has invested over $1.8 million to support our partners throughout their journey towards implementing new policies and procedures to help achieve PCMH recognition. Year to date, Care Compass has 95% of their attributed practice sites that are eligible to become PCMH sites, approved or pending application approval for PCMH 2014 Level 3 recognition. “This is a huge undertaking for the primary care practices to achieve advanced PCMH recognition, especially at this very pivotal time in healthcare,” says Mark Ropiecki, Executive Director of Care Compass Network. “Our region is at the head of the PCMH effort across NYS. As a result, community residents can expect their care delivered in an aligned way centered around them, leading to a better management of health conditions and an overall better experience. Care Compass Network is proud to have helped our partners achieve this high standard of credential.”

PCMH is a model of care that emphasizes care coordination, teamwork, and technology to deliver coordinated and patient-centered primary care. PCMH sites are working toward building better relationships between patients and their clinical providers. According to research done by NCQA, this model has shown that the PCMH model has improved the quality of care, the patient’s experience, and lowered costs.

In order to receive PCMH 2014 Level 3 recognition, which is valid for three years, healthcare providers have to demonstrate their ability to meet the program’s six key elements of a medical home: patient centered access, team-based care, population health management, care management and support, care coordination, and performance measurement and quality improvement.
