NCQA PCMH Training: July 10-12

OKPCA is co-sponsoring this training hosted by the Texas Association of Community Health Centers (TACHC). Thanks to the Human Resource and Service Administration’s (HRSA) support, TACHC is able to regionally host the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s (NCQA) Introduction to Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and Advanced PCMH training programs. This training has been crafted to support community health centers in sustaining and achieving PCMH status. If both trainings are completed, this is also an opportunity for Primary Care Associations’ and community health centers’ staff to achieve PCMH Content Expert Certification (PCMH CCE) credential. Meals, materials and continuing education are included as part of the registration costs. Descriptions of each training are included below. Please also review the draft agendas for further information.
