Organizational improvement works best when people are equipped with clear roadmaps and practical tools. With this in mind, CHS created the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Toolkit to help community health centers and other primary care organizations streamline development for PCMH recognition by NCQA. The toolkit includes:
- A readiness checklist to help the organization determine if it is ready to engage in PCMH development.
- A series of development checklists to help the organization identify PCMH capabilities that are already in place as well as capabilities that need development.
- A scoring tool to help organizations focus their development efforts on PCMH elements that are yield the most benefit.
- A knowledge base of tools and videos for team education in PCMH requirements.
This type of toolkit can dramatically streamline the development process while also helping staff learn and develop their skills in PCMH development and teamwork.
