The Patient-Centered Primary Care Home Program worked with Oregonians across the state to set the standards that determine what a recognized primary care home looks like. Click here to learn more about the Standards Advisory Committee.
Beginning in January of 2021, all practices applying or
re-apply for PCPCH recognition do so under the 2020 PCPCH recognition standards and criteria which are described in the PCPCH 2020 Recognition Criteria Technical Specifications and Reporting Guide. The PCPCH 2020 TA Guide Revisions Summary and the PCPCH 2020 Quick Reference Guide outline the differences between the 2020 standards and the previous 2017 standards. The 2020 Standards Self-Assessment Tool can help practices anticipate what tier level their practice meets under the 2020 standards.
To apply to become recognized, please visit the Become Recognized page.
All practices that most recently applied or
re-applied for PCPCH recognition before January of 2021 are recognized under the 2017 PCPCH standards and criteria which are described in the PCPCH 2017 Recognition Criteria Technical Specifications and Reporting Guide. Practices in this group should use this guide to prepare in the event that they are randomly selected for a site visit before they re-apply under the 2020 recognition standards. The 2017 PCPCH Criteria COVID-19 Considerations may also be a helpful resource for practices in this group whose operations have been impacted by COVID-19.
Many practices have already, or are in the process of, pursuing Patient Centered Medical Home recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. While this model is not identical to the Oregon primary care home model, there are areas of similarity. The Oregon Health Authority will recognize Patient Centered Medical Home sites at the level that the National Committee for Quality Assurance has recognized the site, with submission of additional information. If your clinic is already NCQA recognized, please contact PCPCH program staff to discuss your options at PCPCH@oha.oregon.gov
