Improving Primary Care in Response to Patient Feedback


How's Your Health is an Internet-based survey of patients' health and health care. Past Fund support enabled the creators of How's Your Health to validate the survey and diffuse it among communities and businesses, which have taken to it with enthusiasm. Physician practices, however, have been reluctant to integrate the technology into everyday practice. This project will seek to package the survey with other patient-centered technologies and, in collaboration with a Medicare Quality Improvement Organization, integrate them in up to two dozen primary care practices. The practices will be coached on how to use the patient feedback obtained from these tools to provide patient-centered care. In addition, the project team will conduct an evaluation of the dissemination model to gauge its impact on participating practices and patients.
