2018 Highlights for Quality of Care at Affinity Health Center

In 2018, Affinity Health Center set goals to enhance the quality of care provided and to partner with our patients to improve their health outcomes. This partnership resulted in significant improvements in the following areas:

  • Assisting adult patients who are overweight or underweight with a plan for improved health

  • Educating pediatric patients and their caregivers on the importance of good nutrition and physical activity

  • Prescribing lipid-lowering therapy for patients diagnosed with Coronary Artery Disease

  • Assisting children at risk for cavities with dental sealants

  • Ensuring a same-day follow-up plan for patients dealing with depression

  • Despite these improvements, we continue to seek to partner with our patients to make improvements in the following areas:

  • Diabetes management

  • Hypertension management

  • Colorectal Cancer screening

  • Cervical Cancer screening

  • In 2019, we are starting monthly Women’s Health Days to increase access to breast cancer and cervical cancer screening and to promote women’s health.
    We want to encourage our patients to work together with their care teams to improve their health. We are here for you. You matter at Affinity!
