From the lessons learned from the patients-centered medical home (PCMH), the NCQA was motivated to develop an accreditation process for ACOs. The NCQA tried to accommodate the lessons that they learned from the PCMH programs so as to develop a very excellent program that recognizes that provisions of the high-quality primary care are the foundation of good health.

There were some key points I got out of reading this issue of Doctors Digest in regards to quality improvement. I think David Meyers, MD made many good points that are so important to improve the quality of our Healthcare system. He makes the point that data and measurement should be the “starting blocks of quality improvement.” He made another excellent point by saying “If we don’t know how we’re doing, we don’t know where to improve; and we don’t know if we have improved.” I feel these are key questions that must be asked in order to improve quality of healthcare.
