Additional Resources

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

New Study: Total Cost of Care Lower among Medicare Fee-for-Service Beneficiaries Receiving Care from Patient-Centered Medical Homes

August 9, 2014: A new, independent research study, conducted by RTI International and published in the Health Services Research journal, adds to the evidence that accredited patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) deliver lower cost and drive more appropriate health care utilization. The study focused on participants in the Medicare Fee-for-Service (FFS) program, comparing 308 PCMHs recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) with a sample of nearly 2,000 non-accredited PCMHs across three years, beginning in July of 2008.
