Clinical Program Awareness Remains Strong; Understanding Declines in 2018

September 6, 2018

Our second annual survey, issued in June and completed by 319 NEQCA primary care physicians and specialists, showed that awareness of the six clinical programs NEQCA has developed to help its local care organizations and practices succeed in achieving the goals of the Quadruple Aim remains strong, but did not increase, in 2018. The 2-question survey asked physicians to rate their awareness and understanding of these programs. While each of the programs scored over 60% on awareness, the average dropped by two percentage points from 71% to 69%. The question that asked physicians to rate their understanding of these programs showed year-over-year declines on all programs, indicating that more education is needed. The chart below illustrates the year-over year results. While awareness is flat and understanding is down, we also understand that not all of these programs are available to or appropriate for all NEQCA physicians, and we are going to work harder to ensure that we are getting the right information and the right programs to the right segments of our network.

In the meantime, you can learn more about each of these programs by reviewing the new flyers developed in 2017 or watching our new program overviews on NEQCA’s vimeo channel. You can also contact your NEQCA Account Manager to request a presentation on one of more of these programs at your Local Care Organization or practice.

The 319 physicians who completed the survey were invited to enter a raffle for a chance to win a KardiaMobile EKG Monitor. Mark Singh, MD of Blue Hills Medical Associates (pictured below) was the lucky winner.
