Mountain-Pacific Quality Health Scores Funding for Wyoming Chronic Disease Prevention Quality Improvement Program
Mountain-Pacific Quality Health received the funding and opportunity to once again work with the Wyoming Department of Health to prevent and manage chronic cardiovascular diseases through the Wyoming Chronic Disease Prevention Quality Improvement Program. This is a new plan to continue work with patients who suffer from diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Mountain-Pacific will team up with the Wyoming Department of Health and the Wyoming Association of Diabetes Educators to use evidence-based strategies to help impacted people have more affordable health care and better quality of life. This work will build upon accomplishments achieved under a Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC) public health grant.
Mountain-Pacific is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation and holds federal and state contracts that allow them to oversee the quality of care for Medicare and Medicaid members. Mountain-Pacific works within its region (Montana, Wyoming, Alaska, Hawaii and the U.S. Pacific Territories of Guam and American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands) to help improve the delivery of health care and the systems that provide it. Mountain-Pacific’s goal is to increase access to high-quality health care that is affordable, safe and of value to the patients they serve. www.mpqhf.org.
