The Community Hospital Clinics earned 5-Stars for clinical quality measures in 2021 and was recently recognized by Keith Dines, Market President with Devoted Health Plans who stated, “We’re so grateful for your team’s dedication to delivering exceptional care to our communities. We wouldn’t be able to keep our members feeling their best without you as our valued partner.” Devoted Health presented the clinical team with a beautiful award in honor of this achievement.

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) uses quality measures as tools to evaluate healthcare providers and healthcare plans. CMS describes the measures as benchmarks for quality improvement and accountability in healthcare. The goals include effective, safe, efficient, patient-centered, equitable, and timely care. The measures, along with best practices, help providers understand which areas may need improvement. The measures also allow patients to review providers via public reporting.

How did the Community Hospital Clinics earn 5-Stars with Devoted Health’s Medicare Advantage Plan?
Devoted Health reviewed its members, who are patients of the Community Hospital Clinics, data and found that the clinics treated patients like family, and delivered quality, 5-Star results. Devoted Health’s philosophy is that everyone has a role to play in ensuring the best care possible. The clinics have proven to see patients in a timely fashion, addressing all their concerns and conditions, as well as keeping their chronic diseases under control.

Clinical quality measures track how well the clinics help members manage chronic conditions, get regular health screenings, and fill their medications.

Below are some of the clinical results for patients seen by the Community Hospital Clinics:
• At least 86% of members with diabetes were able to get their blood sugar levels
under control.
• At least 77% of members with hypertension have gotten their blood pressure
under control.
• At least 90 % of Devoted members with high blood pressure, high cholesterol,
and/or diabetes took their medications as directed, compared to a national estimated
average of 50%.
• More than 99% of members with diabetes appropriately managed their kidney
health to prevent further complications.

These clinical results have meaningful impacts on members’ health and overall
quality of life. “At Community Hospital Clinics, the team is committed to our rural community, “says Jackie Lundblad, president, and CEO. “Providing quality healthcare contributes to the well-being of our patients. It is a responsibility we do not take lightly.”
