Annual Reporting for PCMH 2022

Under the redesigned PCMH program, health centers will demonstrate annually that they continue to align with recognition requirements. The 2022 annual reporting requirements for PCMH recognition are outlined below (Click here to go to NCQA.org for detailed info on Annual Renewal).

Notable Changes

NEW IN 2022! NO MORE QI WORKSHEET!!  Measures data for AR-QI 1-3 must be input from the NEW ‘Measures Reporting’ tile of the Organization Dashboard on Q-Pass.  The practice may choose to report in two ways:

  • If the practice is utilizing a standardized measure outlined in Appendix 5, it may choose the measure from the drop-down menu in Q-PASS and the measure parameters (e.g., numerator description) will populate.
  • If the practice is utilizing a measure not listed in the standardized measure table, enter text in fields manually.

Quality Measures Crosswalk
This document represents a crosswalk chart of the quality measures that NCQA will include in its PCMH recognition program. It provides a crosswalk among the measures that are used to support HEDIS reporting, as well as to support payment incentive programs such as MACRA. In addition, the chart identifies the measures that NCQA offers certification to vendors seeking validation that their quality measures reporting capabilities meet the CMS reporting specifications. This list will be updated periodically.
