About the award
These physician practices have demonstrated an outstanding performance in the percentage of patients who are Medicare beneficiaries who have been screened for depression and/or alcohol use over a 12-month period, beginning the first quarter of 2017 to the fourth quarter of 2017. Final quality reporting data for 2017 was released in fall of 2018. Award recipients received a Gold or Silver award based on the percentage of Medicare beneficiaries they screened for depression and/or alcohol use. Quality improvement work with primary care providers through the TMF QIN-QIO’s subcontractor Ponce Medical School continues in Puerto Rico. However, because of Hurricane Maria’s widespread destruction in 2017, the island’s population has needed to focus on rebuilding and recovering, and local health care providers have focused on treating patients. Clinical quality data collection and monitoring for the Behavioral Health project in Puerto Rico has been put on hold to better serve the immediate needs of the island. Therefore, rates and high performers from the island have not been assessed.
