Community Care of West Virginia Receives Multiple Community Health Center Quality Recognition Awards
Buckhannon, W.Va. – Results of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Uniform Data System (UDS) review rank Community Care of West Virginia (CCWV) as a federally qualified health center ( FQHC) top rated.
Members of the HRSA Health Centers Program are required to report annually on various sets of data and metrics to help track the delivery and cost of services and care. As a result of recent data reporting, CCWV has been awarded the following badges: Health Center Quality Leaders, Access Enhancer, Health Disparities Reducer, Advancing HIT for Quality, and COVID-19 Public Health Champion.
“Our results in the HRSA UDS exam reflect the success we have had in delivering care, improving patient access and outcomes, and reducing costs,” said Trish Collett, Chief Operating Officer of Community Care of West Virginia. “Our mission at Community Care has always been comprehensive, comprehensive care no matter the situation, and these results inspire us to continue on that path.”
Community Care of West Virginia scored higher on a ranking measure than nearly all other FQHCs nationally in 11 of 15 measures taken. Some of these measures include cancer screenings, depression remission, and BMI screenings. The HRSA UDS review also showed that CCWV has a lower cost per patient than other FQHCs across the country.
“We have made Community Care an affordable, accessible and reliable provider of essential health services,” said Collett. “We have expanded services and programs with the goal of providing our patients with the best possible care without putting financial constraints on them. It is very gratifying to see the results of our work.
CCWC strives to be a healthcare leader and partner not only in the industry, but in the communities it serves. Community Care has been at the forefront of behavioral health issues and substance use disorders. At the onset of the pandemic, CCWV responded quickly and launched telehealth and mail-in prescription services so its patients could continue to receive care. The organization also partners to provide on-site school health centers in many counties in its coverage area.
“We will continue to partner with our communities, expand our services and move forward in our overall mission to provide quality healthcare to our patients so they can live healthier lives,” said Collett.
