We receive most of our health care in a medical practice or care provider's office. That's why it's important to know how your care providers stack up!
Infomation on how physician practices in Maine perform, as well as how they care for patients with certain medical conditions, is available from the Maine Health Management Coalition.
The Coalition looks at physician practices that care for adults, children, orthopaedic patients and cardiology patients.
For adults, the Coalition rates care for people with diabetes and heart disease as good, better or best. It also indicates whether practices have systems in place for safe care, such as how well they track test results, send reminders and avoid medication errors.
For pediatric practices, the Coalition examines immunizations and care for children with asthma as well as the safe-care systems mentioned above.
