Puget Sound Family Physicians (PSFP), a family practice network of four clinics with 44 providers, is lending its implementation and adoption expertise to four other practices in the King County, Wash. community.
With funding provided by a local hospital via federal Stark Law Relaxation legislation, Puget Sound has been tapped to work directly with the practices during all phases of the switch from paper-based to digital healthcare, advising each group’s leadership and sharing best practices for clinical content and workflows.
The practice is a member of GE Healthcare’s (Barrington, Ill) Medical Quality Improvement Consortium (MQIC), a service which allows healthcare organizations to submit de-identified patient data from Centricity EMR and then access quality outcomes reports – allowing an objective assessment of patient care quality at PSFP against established standards. Through participation in MQIC, all eligible providers at Puget Sound have achieved certification from the National Committee for Quality Assurance for their Diabetes Physician Recognition Program.
