The PCMH Congress of the NCQA is underway in Orlando. It is the perfect setting to recognize the people who make so many others through the transformation. Of course, I refer to Certified Content Experts (CCE). They are too familiar with the concepts of engagement, transformation and success.
Recognizing the best of the best
This weekend, the NCQA recognizes two individuals who have played a remarkable role in the CCE community. They won the first quality awards of PCMH CCE. Our recipients are Lori Francis, PCMH CCE, PCMH Vendor Consultant, Tennessee Blue Cross Blue Shield and Ken Watson, PCMH CCE, Practical Support Coordinator, Center for Health and Education.
