Version 14.10

From your menu bar in OP, click the Tools menu and select QIC from the drop-down menu. The Office Practicum Quality Improvement Calculator (QIC) is displayed.


There are four tabs displayed:  Reports, PCMH Custom, Database Administration, CMS QDE. By default, the Reports tab is displayed. This is what we will discuss first.

Report Group:  Select a Report Group from the drop-down menu. Those that apply to NCQA 2017 PCMH Standards are:

  • PCMH 2017 AC Concepts
  • PCMH 2017 CC Concepts
  • PCMH 2017 CM Concepts
  • PCMH 2017 KM Concepts
  • PCMH 2017 QI Concepts

  • Date Range:  Select your Begin and End date.
  • Provider:  The QIC gives the ability to report by provider or for your entire practice/location. It is recommended to select the All checkbox for PCMH reporting since the reports are based on location instead of individual providers in the practice.
  • Location:  The QIC gives the ability to select a single location or all locations. Location is typically selected for PCMH reporting. If you are a single location practice, no selection is necessary.

Once the Report Group, Date Range, Provider and Location have been defined, you can generate the results by clicking the Refresh button.
