CHC Again Recognized for Quality Improvement EffortsNovember 9, 2017
Mashpee – Community Health Center of Cape Cod has once again been recognized by the Bureau of Primary Health Care as a Health Center Quality Leader. The bureaus announced the awards in mid-August for Health Centers’ performance in calendar year 2016. CHC of Cape Cod was one of just 13 health centers in Massachusetts to receive the Health Quality Leader Award
Each February, CHC of Cape Cod submits a Uniform Data Submission (UDS) report to the federal government, which includes a number of productivity and outcome measures from the prior year. For 2016, CHC’s outcomes ranked in the top quartile of all health centers nationwide for four measures: Cervical cancer screening, adults screened for tobacco use, controlling high blood pressure, and managing diabetes.
The Health Center’s use of an electronic health record, and their focus on health maintenance and evidenced based standards helped them achieve recognition for the third straight year. CHC of Cape Cod is working to improve its rankings even further in 2017, with a goal to be considered for the National Quality Leader Award in 2017.
