Inaugural Quality Improvement Awards
Partners For Kids is excited to announce the recipients of our first annual Quality Improvement Awards. The awards are modeled after Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s One Team Values. The community practices receiving these awards exemplify each of these values and have shown commitment to continuous improvement in quality outcomes for their patients. Congratulations to the teams at Pediatric Associates, Christ Care Pediatrics, Chillicothe Pediatrics and Marysville Pediatrics!
Pediatric Associates, Inc.– “We Get Results”, in recognition of Dr. Richard Brilli, former Chief Medical Officer at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
Pediatric Associates, Inc. demonstrates “getting results” by increasing their well visits an average of 4% in all three well child age groups. They’ve also increased Asthma Control Test utilization from 75% to 86% which has led to reduced hospital stays and emergency department visits for their patients.
Christ Care Pediatrics – “We Do The Right Thing”
Christ Care Pediatrics demonstrates “doing the right thing” by being open 7 days a week and going beyond their office hours on a daily basis to meet the needs of their patients. They also regularly offer combination visits to ensure patients get their well care visits and when COVID-19 started, they immediately began offering telehealth services.
Chillicothe Pediatrics – “We Are Agile and Innovative”
Chillicothe Pediatrics demonstrates being “agile and innovative” by using changes their practice has experienced over the past few years, (i.e., moving office locations, implementing a new EMR) as opportunities for growth. Despite these challenges, they successfully completed multiple QI projects and are continually thinking of ways to improve.
Marysville Pediatrics – “We Promote Health and Well-being”
Marysville Pediatrics demonstrates “promoting health and well-being” in several ways. They take the time to call every patient that goes to the emergency department, provide welcome baskets to new babies, use social media regularly to communicate with their families and the community and regularly attend local community events.
