PCMH Recognition Redesign. It was all the talk at the PCMH Congress in Chicago.
What will the newly designed process for earning Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition look like? Is it really a simplified process? Will it require less paperwork? Less time to compile information and report?
The answers: It will look significantly different from the current process to earn recognition and most of the reporting work happens online. Yes, there will be less paperwork. Yes, it should take less of the valuable time you’d rather spend with patients.
“What else can you tell us?”
There are more questions to answer. So, we called on Dr. Michael Barr, our executive vice president leading a team of dozens to overhaul the whole process. PCMH Congress in Chicago seemed the perfect place to ask for a progress report. There is a lot to share. Watch for yourself.
