Marysville Pediatrics is a PFK Quality Improvement Award Winner
Marysville Pediatrics received the award “We Promote Health and Well-Being” for their commitment to the values of balancing work/life demands, generating compassion, optimism, and energy in one another, and advancing the health of the community. Marysville Pediatrics began working with Partners For Kids on quality improvement (QI) projects in 2016 focusing on Fluoride Varnish and have since began an Emergency Department (ED) Visit Reduction project, a Healthy Children project on well care, and recently started an Immunization project as well. They’ve reduced the rate of ED visits by 50%. And they have increased well care compliance for 3-6 year olds from 54.2% to 68.0% and for adolescents from 38.6% to 44.4%. They’ve demonstrated a commitment to the values of this award by calling every patient that has a recent ED visit to follow up, delivering baskets to community organizations with information about their practice, providing welcome baskets to new babies, using social media regularly to communicate with their families and the community, and regularly attending local, community events.
Congratulations to the team at Marysville Pediatrics and thank you for all the work that you do.
