First Choice Healthcare's Quality is Highlighted on National Website


This resource shows how participating Albuquerque medical groups are performing in specific measures for diabetes care, cardiovascular care, asthma care and screening for breast and cervical cancers. This year’s report also includes information about how well blood sugar and cholesterol levels are controlled for patients with diabetes, how well high blood pressure is controlled with patients with high blood pressure and how well cholesterol is controlled for cardiovascular patients.
The Albuquerque Coalition for Healthcare Quality (http://www.abqhealthcarequality.org/), which includes local hospitals, health plans, health care providers, employers and consumers, is leading the local Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q) initiative (http://www.rwjf.org/qualityequality/af4q/) to improve the quality of health and health care in our community. Participation in this effort and Medical Group Snapshot is voluntary. First Choice Community Healthcare is a proud participant in the Albuquerque Coalition for Healthcare Quality’s AF4Q work and this report.
