Ballard Pediatric Clinic has achieved national recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home. This means we are constantly striving to improve our procedures and processes in order to provide the best and highest quality care to your child. Through this work we are monitoring data and using data to measure and improve outcomes. Some of the data we look at are immunization rates, medication management, patient satisfaction, and more. We’d like to share some of our successes with you:
*91% of our 13 year-olds are up-to-date on both Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria, Pertussis) and MCV4 (Meningitis) vaccines.
*We are reducing unnecessary antibiotic use for the treatment of pharyngitis (sore throat). As a result, 98% of patients who were prescribed an antibiotic for pharyngitis had a strep test performed to ensure antibiotics were indicated.
*On our patient experience survey, 95% of families surveyed reported that our “providers explained things understandably” and 96% reported that our “providers showed respect for what the patient said”. Thank you to those families who have participated in our survey. We truly value your feedback!

We gave 2700 flu vaccines in the month of October!
Therefore, we will be sending $2,700.00 to Stamm Camp for Kids!
Every October Ballard Pediatric Clinic donates $1.00 for every FLU vaccine administered in that month to a charitable organization.
This year we have selected Stamm Camp! Read about Stamm Camp and its founder here: http://mynorthwest.com/684441/hometown-hero-dr-stanley-stamm/
