Dr. Jessica Fairchild, Internal Medicine Associates in Lexington, was excited to learn from her KHP RN Health Coach Teresa Crowell that she had a 51% increase in compliance with Annual Wellness Visits. As part of her work to help providers improve quality, Teresa visits with physicians to share care metrics and educate them on how to close care gaps through the Annual Wellness Exam.
Dr. Fairchild shared how beneficial it was for our care managers to mark the Red Alert section on AEHR with the particular measure that needed to be met. Internal Medicine Associates has recently started utilizing an outreach program to contact their patients about coming to the office for needed screenings. They credit that new system – and Teresa’s education and outreach – with their increase in exams.
