HMP Communications Holdings, LLC, a leader in healthcare communications and education, announces the launch of the Patient-Centered Medical Home Congress (PCMH Congress), a live, annual meeting for clinicians, PCMH recognition consultants, and experts dedicated to transforming primary care practices into medical homes. This official NCQA and first-of-its-kind national conference will take place at The Hilton San Francisco Union Square, San Francisco, CA from October 9-11, 2015.
The 2.5-day PCMH Congress will feature a full agenda of live and hands-on experts helping attendees to navigate the fastest growing trend facing the American healthcare system—preparing for, achieving, and maintaining PCMH transformation. Attendees will have opportunities to interact with primary care peers, industry partners, vendors, NCQA standards experts and best-in-class consultants though plenary sessions, breakouts and exhibits.
“Practices going through the patient-centered medical home transformation need guidance through informative and action-provoking seminars,” said Mina Harkins, Assistant Vice President of Recognition Programs Policy and Resources at NCQA. “The PCMH Congress is a premiere, comprehensive conference for practices, managers and consultants to learn how to succeed in reaching the Triple Aim through practice transformation and the NCQA PCMH Recognition process. NCQA is excited to work with HMP Holdings and their subsidiary, the North American Center for Continuing Medical Education, to provide our motivated practitioners with this face-to-face learning format.”
The patient-centered medical home is a way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into "what patients want it to be" while helping to achieve the “Triple Aim” of improving cost, quality, and patient experience. The NCQA PCMH Recognition is the first and most widely used formal assessment program.
“PCMH Congress is a live, interactive marketplace of exchanging ideas, services, products and best practices, all toward elevating entire systems of care,” said Jeff Hennessy, chairman and chief executive officer, HMP Communications Holdings. “PCMH Recognition and NCQA’s mission to improve healthcare quality aligns perfectly with our commitment to deliver transformative, must-have educational content to our primary care audience.”
Accredited by NCQA, PCMH Congress offers participants the opportunity to earn Continuing Medical Education, Nursing Contact Hours, Pharmacy Credit and maintenance of certification credits for Certified Content Experts (CCEs). Registration is now open at http://www.pcmhcongress.com.
