Frequently Asked Questions

We’re making it easier to get the information you’re looking for. Simply browse the questions and answers below. We post new answers frequently, so check back often!

What does PCMH certification mean?

The National Committee for Quality Assurance gives medical home recognition to practices with a model of primary care that combines teamwork and information technology to improve care and communication, improve patients’ experience of care and reduce costs. Medical homes foster ongoing partnerships between patients and their personal clinicians, instead of approaching care as the sum of episodic office visits. Each patient’s care is overseen by clinician-led care teams that coordinate treatment across the health care system. Research shows that medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patient and provider reported experiences of care. See NCQA for more information about the certification and accrediting body.
