ICHS ranked Washington’s No. 1 community health center

ICHS ranked Washington’s No. 1 community health center

Published

The Washington Health Alliance’s Community Checkup recently ranked International Community Health Services (ICHS) among the state’s top performers for excellence in care for Medicaid-insured patients. In 2016, 59% of ICHS patients were insured under Medicaid, the federal government health insurance program for low income individuals.

ICHS was compared to other community health clinics, medical groups and hospitals across Washington on measures including monitoring and screenings for conditions such as high blood pressure, breast cancer and diabetes, and the number of patients who take required medications.

“These results reflect what we already know – that ICHS and community health centers across the state deliver tremendous value to patients and society,” said Teresita Batayola, ICHS CEO. “Our patients, many of whom are among the most vulnerable and underserved, are low income, immigrant and minority community members. Yet, they are healthier and more productive because they receive affordable care that is high quality, effective and proven. ICHS is proud to be ranked highly as helping the state raise standards for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of illnesses, as well as for counseling and health education.”

ICHS clinics in Seattle, Shoreline and Bellevue were rated on 22 measures for Medicaid insured, performing “average” or “better than average” on 21 when compared to other report participants. Among the areas where ICHS demonstrated excellence in treating Medicaid patients was in the effective treatment of heart disease; diabetes; and colon, cervical and breast cancer screenings.

The results of the Community Checkup, now in its eleventh year, reflect the care provided to approximately four million patients in Washington and is based on more than 100 measures of health care quality, using data supplied by more than 25 entities including health plans, self-insured employers and union trusts, and state agencies.
