We are excited to welcome our new physician, Dr. Zachary Denka. Dr. Denka Joined us in August of 2016 and is welcoming new patients.
In January of 2016 Dayton Family Practice was selected to become one of approximately 1900 primary care practices across the country in the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative, commonly known as CPC+. This is the nation's largest ever program to improve primary care. The program emphasizes patient centered care and continuous quality improvement. We are excited to be a member of this program and will be working to implement changes to improve our patients health care experience.
Dayton Family Practice continues to work on improvement in many quality and utilization measures. Over the last two years we have implemented multiple changes to our workflow in an attempt to improve areas such as preventive measures as well as clinical quality measures. Our practice has improved in many of these areas. Specifically, we improved our screening for Hepatitis C in the appropriate age group by 24%. We also improved our pneumococcal immunization rate by 44%. Our use of unnecessary antibiotics has improved by 32%. We are continuously practicing quality and utilization measurement and working to improve the health of our patients.
