REALITY




10
Both accreditation & NCQA recognition symbolize
organization-wide quality
NCQA is most recognized by payer & may be
required by Medicaid in some states
Some FQHCs will seek both accreditation & NCQA
recognition – BPHC will pay for both
Meaningful Use probably needs to come first
Accountable Care Organizations are on the horizon
Key to Success: Engaged Leadership


11
PCMH transformation requires the visible
and sustained engagement and tangible
support of a wide range of leaders within the
practice.
To drive and sustain PCMH transformation,
leaders must provide the vision for change,
help identify changes to test, and build and
sustain the will within the practice for
transformation.
