NCQA is planning an ambitious redesign of the PCMH recognition program in response to feedback from clinicians, practices, employers, payers, health services researchers and other key stakeholders. The project has been underway for approximately 12 months. We recently completed two pilots of the revised program involving over 120 practices across 15+ states and a variety of primary care practices (e.g., size, geography, ownership).
