Complimentary Webinar for SLMMS Members on Thursday, May 1
BizMed, a local health information technology company, has invited St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society members to participate in a free informational webinar “Medical Home Recognition Decisions” on Thursday, May 1, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. central time to objectively explore options available to primary care practices.
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH) recognition may allow primary care practices to obtain financial incentives from private and public health insurance plans. NCQA recently announced the PCMH 2014 standards which are closely aligned with Meaningful Use Stage 2 and introduce stronger emphasis on behavioral health and structured team-based care, among other expanded requirements. By comparison, the NCQA PCMH 2011 standards are aligned with Meaningful Use Stage 1 and are better suited for small practices. BizMed is hosting this webinar and offering primary care practices an accelerated and simplified opportunity to apply for NCQA PCMH recognition under the 2011 PCMH standards.
Although NCQA has raised the bar in 2014, there is still time to get PCMH recognition under 2011 standards. Join us on May 1, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. central and let us help you make an informed decision.
