NCQA Reviewing Comments About Its DM Standards


Surveys will begin in January for disease management organizations seeking the National Committee for Quality Assurance's seal of approval. NCQA took public comment on its DM standards until July 31.

Accreditation is offered to entities that pass a review of six areas: program content, clinical systems, coordination of care, patient self-management, practitioner support, and clinical performance measurement. Certification focuses on one or more of these areas.

Health plans that contract with an accredited or certified DM organization will get automatic credit on related standards for quality improvement that would apply to them.
