Specialists Can Now Get NCQA Recognition

From the National Business Coalition on Health: The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) —architect of America’s most popular patient-centered medical home model—has extended medical home concepts to specialists and released its latest program: NCQA Patient-Centered Specialty Practice (PCSP) Recognition. 

Now specialty practices committed to access, communication and care coordination can earn accolades as the “neighbors” that surround and inform the medical homes and colleagues in primary care. 

Practices that become recognized will demonstrate patient-centered care and clinical quality through:

  • streamlined referral processes and care coordination with referring clinicians, 
  • timely patient and caregiver-focused care management, and 
  • continuous clinical quality improvement. 

Earning NCQA Patient-Centered Specialty Practice Recognition shows consumers, private payers and government agencies that a specialty practice has undergone a rigorous review of its capabilities and is committed to sharing information and coordinating care. Recognition also signals to primary care practices that a specialty practice is ready to be an effective partner in caring for your shared patients.
