Abstract

This poster describes a project that used a patient-centered medical home model to improve cervical cancer screening for patients at Duffy Health Center in Hyannis. Lessons learned include: identifying existing opportunities to provide whole-person care may provide revenue enhancement opportunities; practice workflow tools require user input in their development to be accepted and effective; buy-in from all team members is crucial and it is important for the team to agree on the process; and data collection is essential, along with ongoing quality improvement and practice transformation coaching.
