The statewide rate is 79% for all reporting clinics.
This means that for every 100 adult patients, 79 gave their clinic a top rating of 9 or 10 on a 10-point scale ("most positive").

Standards of Care
Standards of care are treatment guidelines that are generally accepted by health care professionals as valid and supported by sound scientific evidence.
Quality care standards
Quality health care is safe, effective and centered on you, the patient. That means that you should expect clear communication, reliable and timely information, respect, and pleasant interactions with your providers and their staff.

Patient Experiences at Hospitals
The best quality care happens when doctors and health care providers work as partners with patients, family members and caregivers. Research shows patients who have the knowledge, skills and confidence to advocate for their health care also have the best patient experiences. And patients who have positive relationships and good experiences are more likely to return for follow up tests, take medications they're prescribed, and stay healthy.
