Patient Centered Medical Homes

June 3, 2013

As the healthcare world changes, we must always be on the lookout for ways to improve both patient care efficiency and quality.  The Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) concept came into existence a few years ago as a collaboration of the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and other quality focused organizations.  Depending on the payer mix in different areas, there are financial incentives available for groups who attain the PCMH designation.  With that in mind, Cockrell and Associates, LLC (CAAHMS) is expanding its efforts in promoting and assisting with the implementation of this model.

With our increased emphasis on the PCMH concept, in addition to our work on other delivery models, CAAHMS is proud to congratulate Jordan C. Cockrell, MPH, OCMH-CCE, on being one of the first to earn the designation of NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Certified Content Experts™.  The newly certified experts include physicians, nurses, allied health care providers, social workers, psychologists, medical technicians, hospital administrators and independent consultants. 

The Certified Content Experts completed two rigorous PCMH education seminars and passed a comprehensive exam validating their knowledge of NCQA Recognition standards and guidelines, application procedures, survey processes and documentation requirements. The designation of NCQA PCMH Certified Content Expert is valid for two years and is renewable.

Content Expert Certification gives practices seeking NCQA PCMH Recognition a way to gauge the qualifications of the growing numbers of consultants and other professionals available to help practices prepare for NCQA PCMH evaluation. By bringing measurement and transparency to the marketplace that has developed around NCQA’s PCMH program, Content Expert Certification helps the medical home model spread and improve the health care delivery system.
