1. What is a Patient Centered Medical Home?

The patient centered medical home (PCMH) is best described as a model or philosophy of primary care that is patient-centered, comprehensive, team-based, coordinated, accessible, and focused on quality and safety. It is supported by robust health information technology (health IT), provider payment reform focused on patient outcomes and health system efficiencies, and team-based education and training of the health professions workforce.

2. Some of the benefits to implementing a PCMH

· Improved patient outcomes.

· Increased medical practice revenue.

· Medicaid pays at Medicare Rates.

· Increased provider satisfaction.

3. MediTouch Patient Centered Medical Home EHR

The NCQA Medical Home program is based on 3 achievement levels, with a points system determining which level of recognition your practice will receive. To reach the highest level of recognition, more than 40 different reports are required by the NCQA.

Without software designed to provide the reports required by NCQA, the amount of manual labor required to demonstrate PCMH proficiency is prohibitive for most practices.

By actively using the MediTouch PCMH Revalidated modules, your practice can receive automatic points (also known as auto credit) toward your recognition. This helps reduce the amount of documentation your practice needs to gather and present to NCQA, making the process of becoming a recognized Medical Home quicker and smoother. Sunlife Solutions can help your practice become a PCMH today.
