NCQA Recognition Consulting For Specialty Practices
HealthTeamWorks has provided coaching services, resources and support to practices, groups and networks with the goals of achieving National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) recognition and providing the tools and capacity to help practices make the changes necessary to improve patient care and outcomes.
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) initially designed its recognition process for the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) to help define the standards to improve quality to thousands of practices. This recognition has been extended to the many active specialist physicians, who previously were not eligible, but have a similar commitment and should be recognized for providing high quality patient-centered care.
Specialty practices choose to receive the Patient-Centered Specialty Practices (PCSP) NCQA to capitalize on opportunities for compensation, such as achieve the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) requirements, which can impact potential MIPS incentives and penalties for eligible physicians applied to Medicare Part B payments. Additionally, PCSP NCQA Recognition is qualified as an approved improvement activity and recognized practices will automatically earn full-credit under the composite performance score (CPS) component.
HealthTeamWorks provides PCSP practices proven tools and resource, extremely quality personnel, and a highly responsive approach to managing the many deliverables required by NCQA, including:
- A full application review gap analysis to build the groundwork for practice transformation and advanced specialty care. This analysis creates the foundational understanding of what it takes to transform to the model of patient-centered care.
- NCQA webinar series, consisting of webinars accessible for your staff to review through our Solutions Center. Our webinars provide in-depth descriptions of the requirements for NCQA recognition and a review of documentation examples, as well as how the recognition process provides the practice opportunity for developing systems structures and processes to promote transformation to the patient-centered model of care.
- Phone or in-person consultations for participants
- As an additional benefit and for a separate fee, HealthTeamWorks will make consultation time available from a NCQA Certified Content Expert to review your practice application and all supporting documentation prior to submission to NCQA.
