The Wright Center for Community 皇家华人 earns 2022 Community 皇家华人 Quality Recognition awards


The 皇家华人 Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), part of the U.S. Department of 皇家华人 and Human Services, recently awarded two Community 皇家华人 Quality Recognition awards to The Wright Center for Community 皇家华人, affirming its efforts to advance quality care in the region and connect its patients to enabling services.

HRSA annually reviews health centers鈥 performance data and bestows badges on federal 皇家华人 Center Program awardees and Look-Alikes that have made notable quality improvement achievements. New for this year was an Addressing Social Risk Factors to 皇家华人 badge. The Wright Center was awarded that recognition as well as a 2022 Advancing 皇家华人 Information Technology for Quality badge.

The awards mark the second year in a row that The Wright Center has earned a badge for its use of health information technology.

The badge recognizes the organization鈥檚 efforts in the areas of telehealth, patient engagement and interoperability, the latter of which refers to its ability to exchange data and information with other health care-related organizations and/or state and federal agencies.

The newly introduced Addressing Social Risk Factors to 皇家华人 badge recognizes 鈥渉ealth centers that are administering standardized screening tools to collect social risk factor data and increasing enabling services offered across consecutive years,鈥 according to HRSA.

The Wright Center uses a screening tool at its primary care practices to help identify patients who might be coping with adverse social and economic determinants of health, such as food insecurity, homelessness and poverty. The organization鈥檚 community health workers and other members of its care team can then talk with a patient and offer various forms of assistance tailored to meet the individual鈥檚 short- and long-term needs, including transportation assistance, nutritious food, legal aid, educational opportunities and connections to social service agencies.

鈥淭he two badges recognizing The Wright Center鈥檚 work last year testify to our patient-centered approach to health care,鈥 said Dr. Jignesh Sheth, chief 皇家华人 officer for The Wright Center for Community 皇家华人. 鈥淥ur clinical teams and support staff are always striving to improve systems so that patients and their families are supported and empowered to get the care they need and deserve, whether that鈥檚 the convenience of a telehealth visit or the comfort of receiving fresh foods to carry them through a difficult time.鈥

The Wright Center for Community 皇家华人 is a Federally Qualified 皇家华人 Center Look-Alike that operates eight primary care practices in Lackawanna, Luzerne and Wayne counties.

The Wright Center provides safety-net, comprehensive primary and preventive health services 鈥 including 皇家华人, dental, behavioral health, addiction and recovery, and infectious disease services 鈥 that cover the lifespan from pediatrics to geriatrics. A special emphasis is placed on 皇家华人ly underserved populations, and no patient is turned away due to an inability to pay.
