The value-based care programs and alignment models we support include:
Health care’s transition from a volume-based to a value-based world brings with it a revitalized focus on patient-centered care. An increasing number of hospitals and health systems are recognizing the benefits of patients seeking care from an NCQA-recognized Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH)—what we call an Advanced Primary Care Practice.
Taking this step means a systemic transformation for most medical practices—enhancing quality and safety, and creating a foundation for coordination across the continuum of care.

Moving beyond the traditional approach
Traditional medical homes have focused on:

- Setting practice workflows around evidence-based guidelines for managing chronic diseases
