Patient-Centered Connected Care Practice Recognition Program
Now, more than ever, patients can choose how—and where—they receive care. NCQA’s Patient-Centered Connected CareTM Recognition program supports clinical integration and communication, creating a roadmap for how your practice delivers patient-centered care—but do not act as the primary care provider. The program focuses on meeting standards that demonstrate effectively communicating and connecting with primary care and aligns you into the medical home “neighborhood.
The recognition program:
-Supports use of evidence-based guidelines in treating patients.
-Provides a consensus-driven framework for how non-PCMH and non-specialty sites fit within the medical home neighborhood and how they connect to primary care.
-Helps providers become a part of the medical home neighborhood, resulting in better outcomes and improved patient experience.
-Improves trust among providers.
-Helps reduce waste in the health care system, such as duplication of procedures and unnecessary readmissions or hospitalizations.
