About NCQA Labs
NCQA’s PCMH Prevalidation evaluates Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems, advanced registries, population health management tools, care coordination tools, patient engagement tools and other related health technology solutions providing functionality that completely meet or support factor-level requirements within applicable NCQA PCMH Standards. If a health IT solution completely meets the functional requirements of a given factor, automatic credit, “autocredit” points are awarded. If the health IT solution provides significant functionality that aligns with the requirements of the PCMH standards for a given factor, but does not fully meet the factor level requirement, a “supporting” designation is awarded. Once a solution receives autocredit or a supporting designation for one or more factors, it is considered “Prevalidated.” Practices that use an NCQA Prevalidated system with autocredit awarded to a factor do not have to submit documentation for that associated factor within their PCMH Survey.
