Campus Health Service receives quality improvement award

July 22, 2008

The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care Institute for Quality Improvement recently announced that Arizona State University’s Campus Health Service has been awarded an honorable mention for their Asthma Review quality improvement study.

Campus Health Service staff conducted a quality improvement study that improved patient outcomes for asthma cases over a two-year period.

The study required a strong team approach with Campus Health Service physicians, nurse practitioners and nursing staff. The experience raised awareness of the disease for nursing and provider teams and ultimately resulted in patients benefiting from the caregiver’s newfound knowledge.

Patients who come to Campus Health Service for asthma may now be able to manage their condition in a more effective manner.

The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc., is a national leader in accrediting more than 3,800 organizations in a wide variety of ambulatory health-care settings. The organization’s Innovations in Quality Improvement Awards Program honors health-care providers who demonstrate excellence in quality improvement and interventions that lead to positive outcomes.
