Quality Improvement activities:

Here at Internal Medicine and Geriatrics, we are dedicated to our patients in every way. Recently we have begun conducting Quality Improvement activities to help improve the health of all our patients. Specifically, for patients we high blood pressure, we wanted to bring down the number of patients with their blood pressure listed as high. Through trial and error we have reached out goals.

 

At the beginning of the year, patients that were in control of their blood pressure were listed at 50%

As of March 31st, this has increased to 64%, due to our targeted actions.

 

We are constantly improving and are continuing to measure things such as this, to improve the health of your health.

If you have any feedback about things we have changed to reach this goal please let us know.
