We help you achieve PCMH status

PCDC supports primary care practices across the nation — including community health centers, hospital clinics, private practices, and specialty practices — to improve the quality of their care and sustainability of their practices. To date, PCDC’s experts have assisted more than 1,100 practices to achieve NCQA PCMH recognition with a 100 percent success rate. Our team of experts supports practices in expanding capacity, integrating care teams, and improving outcomes.

We meet practices where they are to create individualized plans for achieving PCMH recognition, including one-to-one coaching, tools, resources, and support.

PCMH recognition can help practices operationally by improving patient access; cultivating a care coordination process for tracking labs, imaging, referrals and follow-ups from hospitals; and increasing communication among staff and patients.

In addition, PCMH can be a core foundation for participation in value-based payment.

We train. We coach. We consult.

  • Personalized, one-on-one practice facilitation for initial recognition or annual renewal
  • Ad-hoc review of NCQA PCMH documentation for initial recognition or annual renewal
  • Learning collaboratives to support cohorts of practices through PCMH recognition
  • Webinars and in-person trainings to build the capacity of practice staff to own the NCQA recognition process
