Article outlining how to utilize a registry for population management.
Organizing chronic illness care with a registry will streamline your workflow, improve patient outcomes and provide data for quality improvement.
A registry is basically a list of all the patients in your practice who have a particular condition. It helps keep track of when they were in to see you last, what tests they have had and what needs to be done to ensure they get all the recommended care. The office team can use the registry to organize the clinical information that you will need during the face-to-face visit with the patient, making it easier for you to know what is going on and what advice to give. They can also use the registry to track when to remind patients of needed care.
