Learn how to increase reimbursements and decrease physician burnout at the NCQA Workshop - Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition for Osteopathic Primary Care Physicians - from 8 am to 5:15 pm September 13 at Hilton Chicago O’Hare Airport in Chicago.
One of the event’s featured speakers, Mina Harkins, Assistant Vice President, Recognition Programs for the Washington, D.C.-based National Committee for Quality Assurance, will explain how team-based care improves efficiencies and decreases waste, which is exactly what payors like.
Harkins will talk about how it’s becoming increasingly common for payors to reimburse PCMH at higher rates and to include these practices in their network directories.
Studies show that becoming “patient centered” where relationships with patients are nurtured so that they become engaged in their own health care, and a “medical home” so that patients have a base where care originates, results in higher reimbursements, better care and less stress for you.
She will describe how becoming a PCMH requires changing practice protocols and adding a tracking system in order to meet NCQA standards. Practices are expected to submit surveys and provide documentation. The NCQA will review the documentation and designate your practice at a PCMH 1, 2 or 3.
In this program, you will get an overview of the NCQA recognition process and practice PCMH scoring elements and documentation development.
You will learn the six standards of current PCMH recognition requirements, which are:
- Patient-Centered Access
- Team-Based Care
- Population Health Management
- Care Management and Support
- Care Coordination and Care Transitions
- Performance Measurement and Quality Improvement
