NCQA officially launched the first of many redesigned recognition programs…and we started with PCMH recognition.
The biggest change in the PCMH recognition is the move away from a three-year cycle to an annual check-in process. And there’s a lot more! Read about the benefits of the PCMH redesign here.
Q-PASS: Your Guide to Recognition
NCQA built the Quality Performance Assessment Support System (Q-PASS) to help guide you through the redesigned recognition process. Think EZ-PASS, but for PCMH recognition. Q-PASS is the web-based platform to submit information to NCQA.
Q-PASS is a user-friendly resource for you and your practice. When you log into Q-PASS, you’ll notice videos like the one below that explains the virtual review process. These short videos are meant to teach and engage you on the new process. Check out the video and let us know what you think- do you find it helpful? Comment below!
