We exceed national benchmarks for quality care
You can feel confident that you will receive an accurate evaluation and expert care whenever you visit Healthcare Clinic. As part of our quality improvement program, Healthcare Clinic uses a tool known as HEDIS. HEDIS (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set) is a set of healthcare quality standards developed by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. HEDIS is used by hospitals, physician offices and clinics across the country to measure the quality of care they provide. Learn more at HEDIS.com ›
Sore ThroatChildren who are prescribed an antibiotic for a sore throat (pharyngitis) should test positive for strep. This score measures the percentage of children ages 2-18 who appropriately received a group A streptococcus (strep) test when prescribed an antibiotic for pharyngitis. A higher score indicates better performance.
Upper Respiratory InfectionAn overwhelming number of clinical studies have shown that antibiotics are overused for children with viral Upper Respiratory Infections (URI), which antibiotics do not effectively treat. This score measures the percentage of children 18 months to 18 years of age who were diagnosed and appropriately treated for a URI. A higher score indicates better performance.
AcuteAntibiotics are also overused for adults with acute bronchitis. Most cases of bronchitis are viral and do not require an antibiotic. This score measures the percentage of adults ages 18-64 who were diagnosed and appropriately treated for bronchitis. A higher score indicates better performance.
