Breast Cancer Screening-The percentage of women 50-74 years of age who had a mammogram to screen for breast cancer improved to (  5.62  % ) 

Breast Cancer Screening Recommendations

The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is an organization made up of doctors and disease experts who look at research on the best way to prevent diseases and make recommendations on how doctors can help patients avoid diseases or find them early.

The USPSTF recommends that women who are 50 to 74 years old and are at average risk for breast cancer get a mammogram every two years. Women who are 40 to 49 years old should talk to their doctor or other health care professional about when to start and how often to get a mammogram. Women should weigh the benefits and risks of screening tests when deciding whether to begin getting mammograms before age 50.

Medication Reconciliation – The percentage of patients who had their medications reconciled at transitions in care improved to (100% )

 

Reviewing the patient’s medication list and making sure we are providing correct medications to the patients when they are seen by another provider or discharged from another facility prevents adverse drug reactions.

Patient experience regarding getting through to the front desk by phone improved to ( 90%   ) based on the results of the patient surveys completed in 2019.  Our goal is to continue to improve access to care to our patients.
