HRSA recognizes HopeHealth
HopeHealth has been recognized by the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) “for notable quality improvement achievements in the areas of access, quality, health equity, and health information technology” based on data from the 2020 calendar year.
HopeHealth was awarded community health center quality recognition badges in three areas:
Overall clinical quality measure performance – Silver
For achieving the best overall clinical quality measure performance among all health centers. Gold is the top 10 percent of all centers; silver, the top 11-20 percent; and bronze, the top 21-30 percent.
Advancing Health Information Technology for Quality (HIT)
Meet all criteria to optimize HIT services that advance telehealth, patient engagement, interoperability, and collection of social determinants of health to increase access to care and advance quality of care.
Patient Centered Medical Home Recognition
Achieve PCMH recognition in one or more delivery sites.
PCMH recognition patient treatment is coordinated through a primary care physician to ensure the necessary care is provided when and where needed and in a manner the patient can understand. There are five core principles and functions provided by a PCMH:
a patient-centered approach
accessibility of services
quality and safety
Community health centers annually report a core set of information, including data on patient characteristics, services provided, clinical processes and health outcomes, patients’ use of services, staffing, costs, and revenues as part of a standardized reporting system known as the UDS. More information on the data can be found at data.hrsa.gov.
