In our continuing effort to keep our quality of care measures working to the top of our capabilities, we often review our performance through information provided by our insurance carriers. One of the important markers that Williamsville Pediatrics often reviews is our generic medication use. Using generic medications whenever possible helps in controlling costs to the patient/parent as well as to the overall health care system.
Our most recent review from Independent Health shows that Williamsville Pediatrics as a whole does an excellent job in this measure. Our previous generic usage was at 76%, and the most recent report shows an improvement to 81%. Our goal is to increase this to 85% in the future.
