Don't Let the Flu Get You!

Keep your family strong. Vaccinate. Fight Flu.

The best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated every year and now is the time to schedule an appointment for your flu shot. The Centers for Disease Control and revention (CDC) recommends that everyone six months of age and older get a flu vaccine every season. It is particularly important for people who are at high risk of serious complications for influenza, including children younger than 5, adults 65 years of age and older, pregnant women, residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities and people who have certain chronic medical conditions.

If you're not sure if the flu shot is right for you, talk to your health care provider. Manet patients can call 617-376-3000 to schedule a flu shot.

Manet, North Quincy earns national recognition for Patient-Centered care

NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home

 

Manet's North Quincy practice site has received NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term, participative relationships.

The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of primary care that combines teamwork and information technology to improve care, improve patients’ experience of care and reduce costs. Medical homes foster ongoing partnerships between patients and their personal clinicians, instead of approaching care as the sum of episodic office visits. Each patient’s care is overseen by clinician-led care teams that coordinate treatment across the health care system. Research shows that medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patient and provider reported experiences of care.

To earn recognition, which is valid for three years, Manet, North Quincy has demonstrated the ability to meet the program’s key elements, embodying characteristics of the medical home. In 2014, all of Manet's Quincy and Hull sites attained recognition. They are currently in the process of applying for renewal, and Manet's Taunton site, which opened in 2014, is applying for its first recognition.

NCQA standards aligned with the joint principles of the Patient-Centered Medical Home established with the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Osteopathic Association.
