If a productive patient-clinician interaction is at the heart of good visit, then information
is the life blood flowing throughout
The technology is not the issue!
It could be a :
Whatever you use must be able to deliver information that supports the practice team in the delivery of individual and population-based care
A registry is a list of patients and their relevant clinical data that can be sorted by a condition or set of conditions in order to improve and monitor the care of the population
Timely reminders for providers and patients
Relevant for proactive care.
To coordinate care
Ensure understanding of the care processes across all parties
Reduce duplication of effort by care providers
Eliminate frustration caused by uncertainty of who is delivering what care when!
Of the provider and system
Fear: Why do we have to have a registry?
Fact: Planned population-based care cannot be done without knowing your patient population and its key clinical data
Fact: Primary care teams that implement registries are more likely to improve processes of care for all chronic conditions
Fact: Teams with registries are less likely to lose patients to follow-up, and more likely to improve patient satisfaction as care improves
Fear: I don’t need anyone telling me how to practice! I’m doing just fine with my patients!
Fact: Surveys show that providers consistently under estimate the numbers of patients with chronic disease in their practice
Fact: Surveys show that provider consistently over estimate their performance measures on process and clinical outcomes for chronically ill patients.
Fact: The two are interdependent.
Fact: Knowing you population of patients will help rectify this disparity.
Fear: It’s just more work during our already hectic day!
Fact: Using a patient summary form from a Registry will actually reduce charting time and make the visit run more smoothly
Fact: The form gives a snapshot of past care, reminders of needed care and planning for future care all at the time of the visit
Fact: Teams with registries feel better prepared for visits since they have the patient information when and where they need it.
Fear: This will cost me a fortune and there’s no return on investment!
Fact: Implementing a registry is simple, and there are economies of scale as you add more patients.
Fact: Registries facilitate populations-based care which improves outcomes and patient satisfaction
Fact: Planned care via the registry generates visits that are typically of higher intensity while reducing unexpected visits for acute exacerbations
