What is PCMH?
Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a care-delivery model designed to provide patient-oriented, primary care driven by an on-going partnership between the provider, the patient and the patient’s family. PCMH incorporates accessibility, care coordination, self-care and planning, and health information technology to help ensure practices provide health care services through all stages of life that meet certain quality and safety standards. Practices that wish to demonstrate that they meet these standards may seek formal recognition/certification through a variety of state and national organizations. OKPCA has three NCQA Certified Content Expert on staff to assist practices with NCQA PCMH Recognition.
