Our family of four has been Entira patients for just shy of a year now. I cannot say enough good things about EVERY provider and patient care staff we have encountered so far. Highland has a very “small town clinic,” close-knit vibe which is rare to find nowadays.”

New Report Highlights Progress in Depression Care

MN Community Measurement (MNCM), an independent nonprofit organization that empowers health care decision makers with meaningful data to drive improvement, has released a report titled “Depression Care in Minnesota.” The report marks the first in MNCM’s new topical report series and highlights progress that has been made in identifying and caring for depression among adults and adolescents in Minnesota.

In order to provide depression care beyond a screening, health clinics and medical groups will need to adjust their procedures. Entira has championed the use of MNCM’s measure data in its care and has seen measured results. Entira Family Clinics Medical Doctor Timothy Hernandez notes, “Of all the metrics that we are being measured on through MNCM, the depression remission measure has had the greatest impact on changing our care delivery. In order to be successful, one has to develop strategies to reach out to patients between visits. People who are struggling with mental health problems need between visit care perhaps more than people with other medical conditions. Finally, as we begin to manage adolescents who suffer with depression, we have had to use different strategies, such as texting, to reach different generations. The care coordination program that we developed for the depression remission measure became the foundation for our Health Care Home.”
