Quality of Care - PCMH
Alpine Pediatrics is involved in several quality programs to help maintain focus on quality of care and have accountability to deliver that high quality of care. The National Committee of Quality Assurance (NCQA) is an independent organization that works with Medical Providers, the United States Government, and the general population to create quality standards to help Providers maintain a focus on treating the whole patient, not just the reason for the visit that day. Alpine Pediatrics is a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and holds an additional quality designation in Behavioral Health. This means that as a medical provider Alpine Pediatrics will treat all patients with a focus on the whole patient – mentally, physically, and socially.

As a Patient Centered Medical Home Alpine Pediatrics offers a number of services, including, but not limited to: Well-Child Visits, Immunizations, Sick Visit, Suturing, Injury Care, Mental Health Care, Mental Health Medication Management, Lifestyle Management, Asthma Management, calls with a nurse, Integrated Behavioral Health Care, Therapy, and Autism Testing. Alpine Pediatrics also offers an on-call triage nurse and physician which are available to answer questions from patients and families after the office has closed for nights and weekends. The on-call physician and nurse can be reached by calling any of our offices after hours on nights, weekends, or holidays. Additional information about Alpine Pediatrics office hours and locations can be found on the locations page of the Alpine Pediatrics website.

Alpine Pediatrics Providers and nurses use evidence-based medicine and tools to care for patients. Families who visit Alpine Pediatrics can read the evidence-based online symptom checker, the information found here is the same information used by our triage nurses when consulting parents and families about if their child needs to be seen or what homecare can be used. Additional evidence-based patient education can be found on the Alpine Pediatrics Patient Education Page.

Additional information about the Patient Centered Medical Home Model can be found in our Patient Centered Medical Home Brochure on the Patient Education page of the Alpine Pediatrics website.

To help maintain an atmosphere based around quality, Alpine Pediatrics has several staff members that can be reached by calling any of the Alpine Pediatrics Offices. Key points of contact include: Jason Jaussi, Administrator; Andrea Simpson, Nurse Manager; Dani Sevy, Medical Assistant Manager; Katelyn Smith, Population Health Manager. All Office Managers can also be contacted by calling any location and asking to speak with an Office Manager.
