Best Practices for Your Youngest Patients
During a busy day caring for patients or your office needs, it’s not always easy to find time to contact families and remind them to schedule their newborn checkups or other screenings. Scheduling these visits can not only help improve health outcomes for your patients, but they can also positively impact Quality Care Plus (QCP) measure rates for participating providers.
Consider best practices like scheduling all six well child visits in the first 15 months of life at the end of the first visit, educating staff to reach out to members due for appointments and taking advantage of sick visits by completing all services of a well-child visit. For more ideas, download our "Best Practices for your Youngest Patients" tip sheet.
