WRFP installed an integrated electronic health record (EHR) system in 2010. Following initial training and system configuration, WRFP began using the EHR to systematically improve our provision of four priority primary clinical care elements as detailed in our Clinical Value core case study. Our practice then applied our EHR to improve the healthcare of defined populations of patients with chronic disease and enable selective recall of patients who do not meet certain metrics of chronic disease management for more intensive focused care.
Using a combination of alerts, clinical decision support, redesigned patient workflows, standing orders, and routine registry searches for population care surveillance, the practice has achieved measurable improvement in both processes of care and patient outcomes for those patients with diabetes mellitus and/or asthma.
