In 2014 our providers were recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for delivering high-quality care to our patients with diabetes and heart disease. NCQA is known in the healthcare industry for having developed healthcare quality and cost benchmarking systems such as HEDIS.

NCQA Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)

The Patient Centered Medical Home is an approach to providing comprehensive primary care based on a partnership between the patient and their physician. Patient care is coordinated by the primary care provider throughout the healthcare system. Practices are required to go through rigorous evaluations to ensure they fully comply with the PCMH model.

NCQA Diabetes Recognition (DRP)

Diabetes affects an estimated 23.6 million Americans. Complications from diabetes include heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, blindness and kidney disease.
The NCQA Diabetes Recognition Program benchmarks providers that care for patients with diabetes and recognizes those that provide a high quality of care. The DRP program looks at the following measures critical to patients with this serious condition:

  • Hemoglobin A1C control
  • Blood pressure control
  • Cholesterol control
  • Regular eye exams
  • Smoking status and cessation advice or treatment
  • Regular foot exams
  • Proper kidney function

NCQA Heart Stroke Recognition (HSRP)

Cardiovascular disease affects over 70 million Americans and accounts for $393.5 billion in annual costs. About 700,000 people will have a stroke this year, making it the nation’s number 3 killer and a leading cause of long-term disability.
The NCQA Heart/Stroke Recognition Program benchmarks providers that care for patients with cardiovascular disease and recognizes those that provide high quality of care. The HSRP program looks at the following measures critical to patients with this serious condition:

  • Blood pressure control
  • Cholesterol control
  • Use of aspirin or other antithrombotic
  • Smoking status and cessation advice or treatment

Meaningful Use

Meaningful Use is using certified electronic health record (EHR) technology to:

  • Improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce health disparities
  • Engage patients and family
  • Improve care coordination, and population and public health
  • Maintain privacy and security of patient health information
  • Ultimately, it is hoped that the meaningful use compliance will result in:
  • Better clinical outcomes
  • Improved population health outcomes
  • Increased transparency and efficiency
  • Empowered individuals
  • More robust research data on health systems

Meaningful use sets specific objectives that eligible professionals (EPs) and hospitals must achieve to qualify for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Programs.
