Dr. Allan Reis of Western Maine Family Practice Receives NCQA Recognition
Timothy A. Churchill, President and Chief Executive Officer of Western Maine Health announced recently that Allan Reis, MD of Western Maine Family Practice was recently named to the list of physicians earning a three year recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) through the Heart/Stroke Physician Recognition Program (HSRP), beginning in November 2011.
This recognition also means an enhanced ranking with the Maine Health Management Coalition allowing Western Maine Family Practice to achieve preferred provider status with many insurers. The HSRP assesses quality measures from the American College of Cardiovascular guidelines and measures quality on factors such as cholesterol management, blood pressure control, lipid profiles, use of aspirin and smoking status or smoking cessation advice.
The HSRP was developed and launched in 2003 through a partnership between NCQA and the American Heart Association. HSRP Recognition provides assurance that clinicians are providing high quality, evidence based care for their cardiovascular disease and stroke patients. Dr. Reis has been on the Medical Staff at Stephens Memorial Hospital since 1995.
