    Do you know a high-quality health care provider when you see one? Shockingly, defining and measuring health care quality has challenged our health care system for decades. It’s particularly challenging for patients to know if their chosen provider achieves high quality outcomes. Yet, community health centers have been collecting and submitting quality data to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) for decades, and that data is publicly available for all to see. Iowa’s community health centers are proud of the high quality of care they provide, and HRSA recently recognized those outcomes with over $1.3 million in incentive grant awards.
