Suggested Path to Recognition

The documents below offer a suggested path to earning NCQA PCMH Recognition,  including which criteria might be best to demonstrate at earlier and later virtual review sessions.

The tables offer a suggested pathway of which criteria a practice might demonstrate for each virtual review. Practices are not required to follow the suggestions. NCQA assumes that the practice has not attested to criteria through Accelerated Renewal or received transfer credit from prevalidated vendors. A practice that is attesting to criteria or using a prevalidated vendor may be able to move additional criteria to earlier check-ins.

For questions about selecting your criteria for a virtual review, reach out to the PCMH Support Team.
