What’s New with RAHC

Patients’ Stories

{

RAHC has given me access to health care which has helped since losing my job. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to see a doctor.

We had a great experience getting our COVID-19 vaccines at RAHC and thanks to those lovely nurses that took time to talk to us about our shots.

I had been avoiding going to the doctor and dentist for five years because I couldn’t afford health insurance. I am so grateful for RAHC’s affordable health care.

The pediatrician is always so patient with my granddaughter and talks to her, so she feels included in her appointment.

Health Resources and Services Administration Health Center Quality Leader

Health Center Quality Leader

The Rockbridge Area Health Center was among the top 20% of all Health Services Resources Administration (HRSA) supported health centers that achieved the best overall clinical outcomes, demonstrating high-quality across our clinical operations in 2022, 2021, and 2018, and top 30% of all HRSA supported health centers in 2020 and 2019. Benchmarks were determined by mathematically adjusting for certain health center characteristics facilitating comparisons across health centers, and sorting health centers into quartiles for each clinical quality measure. Health centers are assigned a quartile ranking for each of several critical clinical quality measures, based on their performance. These rankings are then averaged together to create an Average Quartile Ranking (AQR). Health centers that ranked in the top decile (top 30% of average quartile rankings) are awarded Health Center Quality Leader recognition.

Patient-Centered Medical Home

Patient-Centered Medical Home

After a rigorous review process, RAHC has been recognized as Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), Level 3, the highest level of recognition. This means that as the patient, you are at the center of a team of health care professionals partnering with you to make informed decisions. By receiving this recognition, RAHC has made a commitment to providing a quality improvement within the practice and a patient-centered approach to care that results in patients that are happier and healthier. This also leads to lower health care costs, higher-quality care, and a more meaningful experience.

Access Enhancer

The Access Enhancer badge recognizes health centers that have increased the total number of patients and the number of patients who receive at least one comprehensive service (mental health, substance use disorder, vision, dental, or enabling) by at least 5% during back-to-back UDS reporting periods (2021 and 2022 UDS).

Advancing Health Information Technology for Quality

Recognizes health centers that meet specific criteria determined by HRSA to optimize HIT services under the following five criteria:

    1. Adopted an electronic health record (EHR) system
    2. Offers telehealth services
    3. Exchanges clinical information electronically with key providers health care settings
