Benton Community Health Center will utilize PECS to create an electronic registry of the population focus. The registry will be used to follow specific outcome measures, and to create a callback and patient reminder system. Under the CCM, our initial focus will be improving self-management support and the standardization of educational tools. Self-management support will be provided through group visits and the use of patient action plans.
Ultimately, we strive to be community leaders in changing the local healthcare delivery model for chronic disease.
