NICHQ to Help Improve Pediatric Care for NEQCA

The New England Quality Care Alliance (NEQCA), a network of almost 1,800 physicians affiliated with Tufts Medical Center, has engaged NICHQ to help it enhance health care access for children across its network and expand its pediatric presence in Massachusetts.

The project will create an improvement strategy to identify areas of excellence within the network and leverage those best practices and leading outcomes to benefit all of the network’s pediatricians and the patients they serve.

NEQCA President and CEO Jeffrey Lasker, MD, MMM, FAAP said the project will help NEQCA build on its strong pediatric services. “We’re very excited to have an organization with NICHQ’s expertise help us further improve upon our solid pediatric outcomes and help equip our physicians with the best tools to excel in their work and enhance the care they provide."

NICHQ's President and CEO, Charles Homer, MD, MPH, added that the work will increase provider satisfaction and enhance NEQCA’s standing in the communities it serves. "We are pleased to offer NICHQ’s expertise to help improve NEQCA’s already successful network,” he said.
