NCQA plans to revise medical home standards


The NCQA plans to update its evaluation program of medical practices pertaining to patient-centered medical home demonstration programs.

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), the Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit, will revise its evaluation program of medical practices, which is used by national health insurers for patient-centered medical home demonstration programs.

More than 500 practices involving more than 4,600 physicians have gone through NCQA review and been recognized as meeting the requirements for a medical home under its Physician Practice Connections-Patient-Centered Medical Home program.

The NCQA's expert panel evaluated the program and revised the criteria, to be released early next year for discussion. The panel will consider how the recognition can improve care and save money, incorporate patient experience into the practice evaluation, incorporate clinical care results into the evaluation and align standards with federal "meaningful use" requirements for electronic health records.
