HRSA is recognizing Health Center Program awardees and look-alikes that have made notable quality improvement achievements with their new Community Health Quality Recognition (CHQR) badges. These recognize achievements in access, quality, health equity, and health information technology for the 2020 Uniform Data System (UDS) reporting period.
CHQR badges include badges health centers will be familiar with as well as new ones to recognize contributions to the COVID-19 pandemic response. Unlike the Quality Improvement Awards of the past, CHQRs are not associated with supplemental funding.
Badge recipient information is available at the national, state, and health center levels on the Health Center UDS Data webpages. If your health center has received a CHQR badge(s), the information is displayed on your health center’s profile page.
If your health center received a badge(s), you can contact Health Center Program Support to request a high-resolution badge image you can use to share the recognition on your website or in your communications. HRSA expects to email certificates to National Quality Leaders and Health Center Quality Leaders in September.
