21 The Easy DecisionsYour practice already has PCMH 2011 recognition – you do nothing until renewal.You decide not to pursue PCMH recognition.Your practice is working on your PCMH 2011 application – no time to lose!You are submitting a multi-site 2011 – your corporate tool must be in by December 31, 2014 and all sites completed by March 31, 2015.
22 Do you go for 2011 or do 2014? If you are… In a Medium to Large PracticeWith standardized & documented processesAn emphasis on integrated behavioral healthWith an advanced HER and state of the art RegistryAble and willing to do Meaningful Use Stage 2Less work in less time…More work in with more time…20112014
23 When is 2014 the only choice? If you are… A health system with a large number of physicians and dozens of sites under one Corporate application.and/or you are…Starting now with little to no prior experience or knowledge of PCMH.
24 Everyone else should be going for 2011! PCMH 2011 Advantages for Small PracticesWith smart work & ingenuity, practices on paper can obtain Level I recognitionLevel III recognition is straightforward even for small practices with MU 1 (or equivalent)Contrary to mythology, lean small practices can become 2011 PCMH recognizedThe increased 2014 emphasis on Team Care, Mental/behavioral health, Processes and Analytics is particularly challenging for small practices
