Manet Receives Quality Awards

Last week, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced $125 million in Quality Improvement Awards to 1,352 community health centers across the U.S. These awards recognize the highest performing health centers nationwide as well as those health centers that have made significant quality improvement gains from the previous year. Health centers must use these funds to build upon their achievements to continue to improve quality, efficiency, and the value of health care delivery in the communities they serve. Of the 39 Massachusetts health centers to receive Quality Awards, Manet ranked 8th and received awards in the following categories:

  • Enhancing Access to Care Award, which recognizes health centers that increased the total number of patients served and the number of patients receiving comprehensive services between 2016 and 2017.
  • Addressing Health Disparities Award, which recognizes health centers that met, exceeded, or made at least a 10% improvement toward Healthy People 2020 goals across different racial/ethnic groups.
  • Advancing Health Information Technology (HIT) for Quality Award, which recognizes health centers that utilized HIT systems to increase access to care and advance quality of care.

"Continuous improvement is just that continuous," says Manet CEO Cynthia Sierra. "We are always seeking to be and to do better for the health center and our patients. This award comes from the persistence and thoughtfulness of each staff member, across sites and across departments with the able guidance and leadership of our Performance Improvement Team led by Rob Shiner, MD, Chief Quality Officer and Misbah Mohammed, Quality Manager."

Start the School Year Off Right!

Start the School Year Off Right!

New backpack and lunchbox, check. Pens, paper and notebooks, check. As the summer winds down, you may be ticking off items on your back-to-school checklist, but before the school buses start rolling, make sure to check these important health-related items off your list, too!

Back-to-school check-up and sports physical

In addition to any general health concerns, a thorough physical exam will also address any emotional, developmental, or social concerns. It is also a good chance to address important questions, especially with teenagers, including adolescent issues of drinking, smoking, drugs, sexual activity, and depression. Sports physicals include screening for injuries, underlying heart and breathing problems, as well as other health issues that can be dangerous to your student athlete. They may be done at the same time—just be sure to bring your school form along.

Immunizations and vaccinations

Getting children and teens ready to go back to school is the perfect time to make sure they are up-to-date with their immunizations. Vaccination protects students from diseases and keeps them healthy. Starting in kindergarten and through 12th grade, students in Massachusetts must stay up to date on vaccines for DTaP/Tdap, polio, MMR, Hepatitis B, and Varicella. Ask your provider for an up-to-date immunization list and keep it in a safe place to bring to each appointment.

Eye Exam

Many children struggle needlessly with vision problems simply because they don’t know they have one. For a child in school, vision correction can make all the difference in their academic performance as well as their ability to play sports and interact with others. A comprehensive eye exam from an eye care professional will ensure that children are seeing and feeling their best.

Ease back into a normal sleep schedule

Summertime is a fun and carefree time for kids, and although they might argue, it's important that they get plenty of sleep. Keep them active during the day and start bedtime 5-10 minutes earlier each night to make the transition easier come September.

Calm first-day jitters

For lots of kids, especially those entering kindergarten or a new school for the first time, the first day can seem scary. Parents and caregivers can help ease these worries by openly discussing what they can expect on day one, helping to pack their backpack in advance, and reading stories about going back to school. Reassure them that being nervous is normal, and they will forget about it in no time!

To make an appointment for a back-to-school physical or eye exam, call 617-376-3000.
