Increasing administrative responsibilities due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. Point of care registries are systems to identify, track, and care for people with chronic conditions in practices. They can be integrated into a practice’s electronic health record (EHR) as well. These point of care registries will be very important going forward, especially as care coordination becomes more valued in health care. POC registries can be extremely useful for managing common chronic illnesses, such as diabetes or coronary artery disease, tracking “high risk-high needs” patients and in assuring that preventive services are delivered to all patients in a timely manner according to evidence-based medicine (EBM) guidelines. When complete, your practice’s POC registry system will be a tool to create a customized, planned visit protocol for a patient at the visit and for outreach between visits. This module will help clinicians put these registries together and put them into action in their practices.
