New York City, NY, March 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CipherHealth, a leading healthcare technology company delivering innovative patient engagement solutions, has earned 2017 Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Prevalidation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

Medical practices leverage the NCQA prevalidation process to identify health IT solutions that will help them meet NCQA PCMH Program requirements. Practices that obtain PCMH recognition become eligible for additional incentives from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

 “We are very excited to achieve this designation,” said Shawn Lemerise, Executive Vice President and Managing Partner at CipherHealth. “This honor demonstrates CipherHealth’s continuous commitment to improving efficiencies in primary care operations and analytics, and to the organizations that share our dedication to enhancing quality of care.”

NCQA PCMH Prevalidation included a rigorous evaluation of CipherHealth’s automated outreach solution, care management platform, and point-of-care patient survey application.

 The solutions are PCMH prevalidated for a total of nine criteria in four PCMH concept areas: Patient-centered Access and Continuity, Knowing and Managing your Patients, Care Management and Support, and Care Coordination and Care Transitions.

 “By providing software that helps physician practices build the patient-focused, coordinated care infrastructure expected of NCQA patient-centered medical homes, CipherHealth is helping practices be part of modern health care’s most important transformations,” said NCQA

President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Medical homes are the way of the future, and CipherHealth is helping practices get there.”
