PCMH: Convenient, Focused and Coordinated Wellness
A certified Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is guaranteed the highest possible clinical improvement score, which represents 15 percent of the total value score for the Merit Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). In addition to this, Alternative Payment Model (APM) and Advanced APMs are value based programs which are given great importance under MACRA; requirements for the PCMH program are almost in line with those for APMs and advanced APMs. There are challenges present in being a certified PCMH, but these can be overcome with thought-out technology and healthcare solutions which will help patients achieve what they truly need.
Robust patient centricity needs to be the primary focus.
We have put together a comprehensive guide on how to go about acquiring a PCMH certification and what you stand to benefit with it.
