What is NCQA Recognition?
What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?
- NCQA Recognition Programs empower employers, health plans, patients and consumers to make informed heath care decisions based on quality. Participation in a NCQA Recognition Program demonstrates that the practice or clinician values quality health care delivery and the latest clinical protocols to ensure that patients receive the best care at the right time. See the NCQA.org Recognition page for more information.
