With students back in school, fall is a great time to circle back practice outreach efforts to remind patients of upcoming chronic condition follow ups, recommended vaccines and health screenings.

The Physician Alliance and the Practice Resource Team (PRT) are working with physician practices in September to help close gaps in care in:

Family Practice:

  • Preventative screenings
    • Breast Cancer
    • Cervical Cancer
    • Colorectal

Internal Medicine:

  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
  • Hypertension (HTN)
  • Chronic Kidney Disease (CHF)

Pediatrics:

  • Adolescent Well-Care Visits
  • Combo 2

Thank you to all the committed practice staff, practice resource team members and TPA staff that are that are working toward closing gaps in care. The Physician Alliance created numerous education materials that include posters along with patient action plans. These action forms can be handed out directly to patients. The poster guidelines help prevent and aid in detection of disease along with informative tips.

Utilizing these materials within the practices are a great way to engage and educate patient populations.  Click here to access available materials.  The marketing materials are available to The Physician Alliance physician practice members.

The American Heart Association created “Get with the Guidelines- Heart Failure” quality improvement program.  Click here to download their Heart Failure fact sheet.
