Seeking Patients For Focus Group

February 02, 2021

For many years now, Pediatric Associates of the Northwest has been recognized by the Oregon Health Authority as a Patient-Centered Primary Care Home (PCPCH). This simply means that we specifically design our services and approach to patient care to help:

  • Coordinate your care to ensure you get the care and services you need, when you need them
  • Listen to your concerns and take the time to answer all your questions
  • Offer after-hours support and alternatives to the emergency room
  • Collaborate to help you play an active role in your health

As part of our designation as a PCPCH, we have check-in visits with the Oregon Health Authority every few years to evaluate how we are doing with providing the highest quality care to our patients. It is an exciting time to look at what new services or programs we might be able to add to make care at PANW as comprehensive, convenient, and accessible as possible!

Gathering feedback directly from our patients is one of the best ways to make sure we are meeting their needs. This is where we need YOUR help! We are looking for parents and teen patients from our Portland and Tigard offices to participate in a virtual patient focus group via Zoom (details below). 

A $50 gift card will be provided to all who participate.
