Transforming primary care practices to patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) and maintaining National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) recognition cost a large physician network about $2.5 million, or $43,000 per practice, revealed a new study in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine.
