In August 2012, the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and Merck published an educational video to guide primary care practices seeking patient-centered medical home (PCMH) recognition. This 22 minute video, "Transitioning Your Practice to the Patient-Centered Medical Home" explains the 2011 NCQA standards and process for obtaining an accreditation.
The video goes into detail about:
- What is a PCMH;
- Why a practice should consider becoming a PCMH;
- Outlines the 2011 Standards and Recognition Program; and
- How your role might change in a PCMH

Introduction to the Patient Centered Medical Home Video
Patients are curious about what a "Patient Centered Medical Home" is and this video was produced by Emmi Solutions in partnership with the Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) in an attempt to answer their questions. Many practices already provide the type of care outlined in the video, and it is by no means meant to be critical to those physicians who are doing their best to provide patient-centered care under the current structure.
