Canyon View Family Medicine and Canyon View Pediatrics has earned a 2016 quality recognition award from HealthInsight, a nonprofit, community-based healthcare organization. To qualify for the 2016 Physician Office HealthInsight Quality Award, applicants were required to meet the criteria of five components:
• Exemplary performance on nationally-recognized clinical quality measures
• Participation in data reporting
• Population management
• Patient engagement tools and strategies incorporated into care processes
• Innovation in care
Our family medicine group completed all the requirements and went even further by achieving additional quality measures beyond the 5 required for the award. Some of those measures included improving patient health as measured by Hemoglobin A1C, blood pressure, and antibiotic avoidance. As part of the Innovative care measure the clinic participates in regular staff training from a registered diabetic educator, or a registered respiratory therapist. The educators provide training to our staff for the purpose of helping our staff better understand disease states such as diabetes, asthma, and COPD. The award represents our providers and staff’s commitment to improve the health of our patients.
Some of the pediatrics group measures included adolescent well care visits, antidepressant medication management, appropriate testing for children with pharyngitis, BMI assessment in children, childhood immunization status, and well child visits in the first 15 months of life (6 or more well visits).
