FQHC Improves Quality Performance Through Enhanced Productivity and Better Staff Engagment
After eight weeks working with Medical Advantage’s practice consultants, the team at this Wyoming FQHC achieved the following:
Staff and provider knowledge of quality measures
More efficient workflows within their EHR system
Coordination and communication regarding patient care
A Wyoming FQHC was struggling to achieve success in their quality programs. With an overburdened staff and high demand for their services, this Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) needed assistance to integrate quality measures into their daily workflows. They enlisted Medical Advantage to help prioritize their quality measures, streamline clinical workflows, and train office staff and providers.
Lack of staff and provider awareness of the 19 quality measures this Wyoming FQHC was working on.
Inefficient workflows that required time consuming and duplicative data entry processes.
Missed opportunities to close gaps in care to meet quality measures.
Medical Advantage’s practice consultants spent time on-site observing the daily operations and implemented a solution that incorporated:
EHR Optimization – including custom templates and order sets to streamline data entry and capture the required quality measures in the system.
Care Gap Alerts – to help staff clearly identify which patients needed a quality measure completed during their visit.
Face-to-Face Training – to educate staff about the quality measures and clinical workflows, and to gain buy-in for the new processes.
Quick Reference Guides – to reinforce the training and solidify new workflows.
“With the assistance of Medical Advantage, we were able to streamline processes, increase quality metrics, decrease unnecessary documentation, and deliver better patient care. Our staff and providers are now more efficient than ever and feel satisfied that they are giving patients the care they deserve.”
