PCMH

NCQA’s Patient Centered Medical Home recognition program highlights the meticulous use of care to patients that is patient-centered and that represents care that is coordinated and comprehensive in its scope. The goal of the medical home is to address and integrate high quality healthcare and management of acute and chronic conditions in a coordinated, planned, and family-centered manner.

NCQA-recognized medical homes demonstrate processes that have been established that meet nationally recognized standards in practices that deliver high-quality medical care to its patients.

The QTIP program helps a practice to establish and improve the quality of children’s healthcare through measures of quality.  With specific regards to provider based models, South Carolina is working to expand the use of pediatric medical homes to address mental health challenges of children in our state.

QTIP assists practices in their work on becoming a patient centered medical home by:

  • Promoting medical home concepts
  • Linking work with core measures to population management
  • Enhancing a practice's quality improvement process
  • Encouraging family involvement

The QTIP project has created a Patient Centered Medical Home Toolkit to provide guidance and insight into the PCMH certification process. The toolkit outlines and simplistandards, resources, documentation requirements, and examples to help practices navigate the numerous requirements necessary for achieving levels 1, 2 and 3 recognition.
