The Patient Care Opportunity Report (PCOR) provides clear and actionable information for physician groups and organizations to use to identify their patients’ adherence to preventive screenings, treatments and medications.

Medicare Advantage PCOR

The UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage PCOR shows which of our members are due for preventive care including screenings, well care visits or other exams. The information is based on claims and pharmacy records, and can help you close care opportunities, including those related to pharmacy compliance, tied to Healthcare Effectiveness and Data Information Set® (HEDIS) measures and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) guidelines.

Commercial or Exchange PCOR

The UnitedHealthcare Commercial PCOR identifies Commercial or Exchange members with open care opportunities for preventive screenings, immunizations or other health care services. The opportunities are in line with HEDIS performance measures, and closing them can help you achieve positive health outcomes for your patients. The report is based on claims data and electronic medical record documentation from our members' health care providers.

Community Plan PCOR

The Community Plan PCOR also uses claims data and electronic medical record documentation from our members' health care providers to identify open care opportunities related to preventive screenings, immunizations and other health care services. The opportunities are aligned with HEDIS and can help you meet quality care standards.

The Patient-Centered Medical Home Program (PCMH) is one of the UnitedHealthcare performance based contracting programs offered in specific markets. The PCMH program provides enhanced payments for primary care providers that implement the medical home model of care.

The UnitedHealthcare medical home model of care focuses on several key elements to help reduce medical cost, improve quality of care and provide the patient a better experience with the provider and the provider's practice care management team.

Examples of key elements include better access to care, coordination across the continuum and transitions of care, chronic case management when needed, preventive care, and medication review.

The Commercial Plan Primary Care Professional Incentive (PCPi) program offers care providers an opportunity to earn bonuses for encouraging their patients who are UnitedHealthcare Commercial members to take an active role in their preventive care and choose treatment options with lower out-of-pocket costs.

In 2017 the PCPi Program will be offered to a limited number of practices in Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, and Texas. In 2018, we plan to review additional practices and markets for inclusion in the program.

PCPi Program Management Report

To help you achieve your target measures and earn a bonus payment, we created a management report of your performance in the program related to cost-efficiency and quality metrics. You will be asked to enter the PIN provided to you at the start of the program. If you need this PIN please send an e-mail to PCPi_EI@UHC.com.

Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) is a great resource for finding both general information about the principles and value of the medical home as well as specific guides for different stakeholders.

National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is a resource for recognition programs including a program for medical home recognition.
