Quality

Leaders in Quality Healthcare

RiverBend Medical Group was among the first multi-specialty practices in the region to incorporate electronic medical records into its patient care. With an electronic medical record, your complete medical history is available to all of your RiverBend doctors anywhere and anytime so as to ensure safe, accurate care. For example, any RiverBend doctor caring for you immediately knows what medications you're taking, if you're due for a blood test, what your x-rays showed, and what your specialist thinks.

RiverBend has worked closely with the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) to ensure adherence to quality healthcare standards in Massachusetts and was the first medical group in the state to receive the highest level of recognition by the NCQA's Physician Patient Connection®—Patient Centered Medical HomeTM Program. RiverBend’s actions and achievements relative to the medical home program demonstrate that we know how to define, measure and deliver quality care.

Our latest quality initiative empowers patients to become involved with the prevention and management of various health conditions. We've placed posters in our exam rooms that prompt you to ask your doctor questions, and we have created this website to encourage you to learn more about conditions that are important to address in a timely fashion. It is our goal at RiverBend to provide you the best informed care.
