Always improving on quality
Priority Partners wants plan members to have the best health care services. We are always checking the services we provide to make them better.
What Are Our Focus Areas?
We use national measures and best practices to make sure that our members get the best care and services. Our Quality Improvement (QI) staff focuses on four areas:
- Organizational quality
- Service excellence
- Quality of care and member safety
- Business process improvement
How Often Are We Graded?
QI is always looking at data and trends. We have many projects and plans in place. These projects are graded every year. We use the results to set goals for the next year.
