NCQA is redesigning the PCMH recognition program. The 2017 PCMH redesign will be rolled out on April 3, 2017. In this new program there will be some key differences from previous recognition programs.

First, NCQA will be retiring the language of “Standards, Elements, and Factors” which outlined the program up until this point. The program requirements will now be called “Concepts, Competency, and Criteria.” See the images to the right for an overview of the six Concepts that will be reflected in the 2017 PCMH program.

Second, the “levels” of PCMH recognition will no longer exist. In order to achieve PCMH recognition in the 2017 program, practices will need to meet 40 CORE criteria plus an additional 25 ELECTIVE criteria (out of the 60 elective criteria available). Practices may choose any criteria among the elective, as long as at least 1 elective criteria is chosen from 5 of 6 of the concepts (see images at right).

This information was covered on a recent webinar by NCQA on January 25, 2017.
