We define the quality of care provided in our health centers and clinics by preventing disease and how well we help our patients manage their chronic conditions. Prevention, early detection and disease management are proven not only to reduce health care costs for patients, but more importantly improve health and quality of life.
Evidence shows that when patients have less anxiety, they are more likely to follow medical advice and also are more likely to report a positive health care experience. Whether they are working directly with patients or supporting someone who is, all Froedtert & MCW staff and physicians focus on creating the best possible experience for our patients.
Keeping you healthy is one of our most important goals. We can help you avoid getting sick by providing appropriate vaccinations when you visit our clinics. We encourage pneumonia and influenza vaccinations and provide patients with a host of appropriate, preventive screenings.
Patients with chronic disease such as diabetes require intensive, ongoing care. How well our care teams help patients manage a chronic disease is an important indicator of our quality. Chronic disease management reflects a coordinated approach across professions to improve or control an individual’s health.
What are we doing to get even better?
- We constantly assess quality results and survey feedback.
- We focus our efforts on the areas of greatest opportunity.
MyChart Access to Test Results and Care Team
How promptly a patient receives his or her test results and how well a provider listens are important to customer service. Our health network has embraced patients’ online access to portions of their medical record through MyChart, to make it easy to receive test results, view the personal health history, view summaries from clinic visits or hospital stays, schedule appointments, renew medication prescriptions and communicate with care teams. We encourage patients to sign-up for and use MyChart because we know their participation in their care will improve their overall health status.
