National Committee for Quality Assurance: Request for Comments on Proposed 2014 Patient-Centered Medical Home Standards

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is requesting public comments on proposed changes to its Patient-Centered Medical Home standards, to become effective in 2014.  Among the proposed changes are the consolidation of standards from six standards to five standards and updates to parallel Stage 2 “meaningful use” requirements for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services electronic health record incentive payments (that are effective in 2014).  Comments must be submitted through the NCQA website and are due on July 22, 2013.

Here are the proposed changes in a side-by-side comparison with the current (2011) standards:
