Muncie, IN — Open Door Health Services has been named an “Exemplary Practice” by the Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN).

Supported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the GLPTN guides healthcare providers in five Midwestern states in a shift to values-based care. This model of care focuses on improving clinical quality measures through a variety of patient-focused best practices.

Exemplary Practices have demonstrated commitment to a patient-centered culture and continuous quality improvement, according to the GLPTN.

In earning the designation, Open Door team members participated in on-site trainings, virtual coaching, and workflow improvement audits.

“Open Door’s employees are always working to improve the health of our patients, and it is gratifying to be one of only a few organizations in the Midwest to be recognized as an Exemplary Practice,” said Bryan Ayars, CEO.

Open Door Health Services is a not-for-profit Federally Qualified Health Center serving more than 20,000 patients in East Central Indiana annually. Comprehensive primary care, pediatrics, urgent care, dental care, behavioral health, and social services are available regardless of income or insurance status. Care is provided at multiple locations throughout Muncie and Anderson. In addition, the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program is administered through Open Door in Delaware and Madison Counties.
