Quality Improvement Transparency

Quality Improvement Transparency

As we continually strive to provide you, our patients, with better care, we must set specific goals for our standards of care. In an effort to be more transparent, we will be updating you regularly on our efforts to improve. In the past few months, we have been working to improve our rates of documented colorectal cancer and breast cancer screenings, Influenza and Pneumonia vaccinations, as well as anti-thrombotic medication use such as aspirin. Through improving both our internal documentation, as well as reminding patients who have not been screened recently, we have improved on many fronts. If you have received these services or immunizations elsewhere and have not disclosed this to your provider, please do so at your next visit, or call 919-773-1223.
