Premier Family Medical understands the role that quality plays in healthcare today. We are part of an industry that is changing on a consistent basis and we have made it our goal to keep up with them in the most effective way possible. By establishing a quality department, Premier Family Medical has been able to become more efficient in tracking and monitoring the health of our patients which, in turn, creates better health outcomes for all.

Our q uality department is heavily involved in the guidelines that are put in place by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. We help manage chronic conditions in our patient population, as well as preventive services that are needed by patients of all ages, by continuously setting and improving on quality-oriented goals. We base these goals on the recommendations of the National Center for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and were recently recognized by NCQA as a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home.

Premier Family Medical’s quality department is located in American fork but our spirit of quality is interwoven into the fabric of each and every one of our locations. We believe that working together with each other, as well as with our patients, creates an environment of teamwork and unity.

In 2011, the CDC reported that  1 in 12 people in the US (approximately 25 million) have asthma , with the numbers rising every year. Can you imagine, then, how many people have chronic asthma in 2017?

Many people develop the disease as children. From then on they experience episodes of shortness of breath, chest tightening, coughing fits and wheezing. During asthma attacks, the airways leading to the lungs constrict, preventing enough air from passing in and out. Additionally, the body produces extra mucus, clogging the airways even more.

Needless to say, it can be a challenge for children and adults alike to live with this condition. Yet, you’ll be happy to know that it is manageable and doesn’t have to stop you from living a full, happy and healthy life. What are some things you can do to keep your asthma under wraps instead of it keeping you under wraps?

When most people hear that word arthritis, they immediately associate it with adults — especially older individuals. While the Arthritis Foundation does report that close to  50% of people over age 65 do have some form of arthritis , many younger individuals are also living with it.

In fact, two-thirds of those diagnosed are under age 65. You might be surprised to know that some 300,000 children of varying ages are a part of this group! The month of July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness month.The purpose is to educate parents and others on this painful condition and help them to support children who bravely battle it each day. Why not test your current knowledge on this important subject?
