The National Committee for Quality Assurance has released a new set of standards for patient-centered medical homes, called PCMH 2014. The standards cover six primary areas and include six must-pass elements necessary for recognition: patient-centered appointment access, components of the practice team, using data for population management, care planning and self-care support, referral tracking and follow-up, and implementing continuous quality improvement. The standards are available at www.ncqa.org/ in the Publications and Products section.
