Palmer receives national recognition for quality care at Davenport Campus clinics
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) announced in October that
the Palmer Academic Health Center and the Campus Health Center clinics on the
Davenport Campus have received Recognition from the Back Pain Recognition
Program (BPRP) for providing superior care to clinic patients suffering from low
back pain. According to the NCQA registry, these Palmer College clinics and
their respective faculty clinicians are the only healthcare facilities and
providers in Iowa to receive BPRP recognition.
The BPRP was designed to improve the quality of care
to the nearly 30 million Americans who experience low back pain by motivating
healthcare providers to deliver high-quality care and service. To receive
recognition, the two on-campus Palmer Chiropractic Clinics were required to pass
a rigorous, comprehensive review of several key clinical measures demonstrating
quality healthcare delivery and service. These measures include appropriate
imaging for acute back pain, recommendations for exercise and attention to
health risk factors, among many others.
