Established patient-centered medical homes (PCMH) have demonstrated improved quality
outcomes and reductions in the total cost of care. According to the Patient Centered
Primary Care Collaborative's (PCPCC) 2012 Review of Cost and Quality Results, several
PCMH organizations reported lowering the cost of care by up to 20 percent and reducing
hospitalizations and ER visitations by up to 50 percent.
NCQA Prevalidates the PatientPoint Care Coordination Platform
With the PCMH model serving as a foundation for a new era of healthcare, PatientPoint
submitted our Care Coordination Platform for prevalidation by the National Committee for
Quality Assurance (NCQA). As part of the prevalidation process, NCQA conducted a formal
review of the PatientPoint Care Coordination Platform as it relates to PCMH 2011 requirements
and awarded PCMH prevalidation for 16 factors with an emphasis on:
Patient access and continuity
As a result, practices using the platform's prevalidated functionality can gain automatic credit towards 15 percent of total points required to achieve NCQA PCMH Level III.
