Wellcentive Team Earns Prestigious PCMH Content Expert Certification
Date:5/30/2013

Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) May 30, 2013

Wellcentive, an Atlanta-based provider of innovative Population Health Management and Data Analytics solutions, today announced that two members of its Implementation Team have earned Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Content Expert Certification (CEC).

NCQA developed the PCMH Content Expert Certification (CEC) program in an effort to help practices and other interested parties identify experts with a demonstrated understanding of the NCQA PCMH Recognition program and to provide professionals with a way to validate their knowledge bases.

The PCMH Content Expert Certification highlights comprehensive knowledge of the requirements, the application process and the documentation of the NCQA PCMH Recognition Program. This prestigious and professional credential positions experts in the field that are aligned with NCQA's mission to improve the quality of health care.

To earn the NCQA PCMH CEC designation, Implementation Team Lead Tracy Webb and Implementation Consultant Wendy Ahrens were required to complete two rigorous PCMH education seminars and pass a comprehensive exam validating their knowledge of NCQA Recognition standards and guidelines, application procedures, survey processes and documentation requirements.

“Certified NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Content Experts receive thorough training and demonstrate in-depth knowledge to assist organizations applying for NCQA PCMH Recognition,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane.

“With so much noise and so many potential partners in the marketplace, it is very difficult for practices to identify those who deliver credible direction and assistance,” said Mason Beard, Wellcentive Co-founder and Senior Vice President of Solutions and Operations. “Our solution has a full range of capability to help care teams proactively manage a patient through all their care transitions which are critical to the medical home model. The PCMH CEC program is another way for us to stand out and demonstrate our commitment to practices that want to be medical homes. We are excited for Tracy and Wendy, as well as the many Wellcentive clients they support.”
