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.
