CVHN members are committed to providing patient-centered, effective, and efficient health care services of the highest quality. CVHN coordinates efforts to capture, review and utilize healthcare data to develop models of care. This support for member health centers helps them meet patients’ needs and to evaluate their efforts to provide quality healthcare for everyone. CVHN annually publishes a Quality of Care Report to our Community, documenting quality performance measures that compare CVHN Health center statistics to state and national measures. The current report measures were selected from publically available 2012 UDS (Uniform Data System) statistics to provide a baseline and a consistent measure for comparing results as we go forward.
In 2012, CVHN Health Centers outperformed National and State UDS Quality of Care Measures for Access to Cervical Cancer Screening, Adolescent Weight Screening and Follow-up, Childhood Immunizations, Asthma Treatment, Cholesterol Treatment, and Diabetes Control. In addition, member health centers outperformed National UDS Quality of Care measures for Access to Prenatal Care, Colorectal Cancer Screening, and Heart Attack/Stroke Treatment.
An analysis of the 2012 measures also reveals that CVHN Health Centers are well positioned to improve their ongoing management of adult weight screening and follow-up, tobacco use screening, and hypertension control by continuing to identify and implement specific strategies to target these areas until these measures also exceed state and national standards.
