Quality Improvement Initiatives
Proactively insuring the highest-quality of care for our members.
Chronic Disease Management
Dean Health Plan has been establishing standards for preventive care for our members diagnosed with chronic illnesses such as Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease. These standards are reviewed every 2 years and distributed to all Dean Health Plan practitioners.
Member education is a primary focus and we encourage self-management by offering educational tools, care reminders explaining the importance of screening/vaccines, risk assessment surveys and support. As a result, members are able to work more effectively with their primary care practitioner
Proactive and Preventive Health Management
Dean Health Plan recognizes that all of our efforts in quality improvement and preventive care rely heavily on our members taking a proactive approach to their own health care. We also understand that we play an important role in educating and reminding our members about the services they need to help them stay on track with their health care.
Preventive screenings are one of the fastest and easiest ways for members and practitioners alike to assure the appropriate level of care is being provided. Dean Health Plan sends out reminders for Colorectal Cancer screenings, Breast Cancer screenings and Cervical Cancer screenings. Reminders are also sent out to parents to keep their children up to date with immunizations.
