Pursuant to G.L., c. 6D, §15, the HPC is required to develop and implement standards of certification for patient-centered medical homes. The purpose of this certification process is to complement existing local and national care transformation and payment reform efforts, validate value-based care, and promote investments in efficient, coordinated, and high-quality primary care.
The HPC, in collaboration with the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), has developed the PCMH PRIME Certification Program. PCMH PRIME emphasizes the importance of behavioral health integration in primary care. Behavioral health conditions (mental illnesses and substance use disorders) suffer from both under and delayed diagnosis and treatment. This is a serious public health problem nationally and across the Commonwealth.

A free copy of the full PCMH PRIME Standards and Guidelines can be found in the NCQA Store. Please note that the HPC recently released updated PCMH PRIME standards and guidelines to align with NCQA’s new 2017 PCMH Recognition program. All practice applying for PCMH PRIME Certification must now follow the 2017 version of the PCMH PRIME standards. More information about recent program changes can be found here.
If you have questions about PCMH PRIME, email HPC staff at HPC-Certification@state.ma.us.
