National Committee for Quality Assurance Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has developed a recognition program for patient-centered medical homes.  The NCQA recognition program includes nine standards:

Access and communication

Patient tracking and registry functions

Care management

Patient self-management support

Electronic prescribing

Test tracking

Referral tracking

Performance reporting and improvement

Advanced electronic communication

Earlier this year, NCQA proposed significant changes to these standards, with the revisions to be finalized in January 2011.
