PRC is happy to announce that we are a conditionally-approved vendor for Primary Care First (PCF) Patient Experience of Care (PEC). This survey is done using a mixed methodology using mail with telephone follow-up and is scheduled to occur in fall and winter 2021. PRC will learn more about the survey administration during an upcoming vendor training on March 24 and 25, 2021.
While CMS is no longer accepting applications for practices beginning participation in January 2021, PCF PEC contributes to payment model options available in 26 regions around the country. The models designed by CMS will assess clinical quality and patient experience measures to measure quality of care at a practice. If you are participating in the January 2021 start, you will be able to select a PCF PEC vendor from June 3–June 30, 2021.
Additional information about PCF PEC will be released here.
