PCMH, CQMs, Measures, and Incentive Programs

Pediatric practices can apply for various Patient Centered Medical Home programs to receive payments while improving patient care.

PCC EHR is Prevalidated for PCMH: By using PCC EHR, your practice is pre-validated for automatic credits towards PCMH recognition. Many pediatric practices have used PCC to achieve PCMH recognition.

Where is the EHR Medicaid Incentive Program?: From 2011 to 2017, many practices used PCC EHR to participate in the EHR Medicaid Incentive Program, sometimes referred to as the "ARRA" or "Meaningful Use" program. PCC EHR still includes reporting tools for measures in those programs and for understanding your medicaid population. For more information, talk to PCC Support.
