PeaceHealth Medical Group in Santa Clara Wins Big on PatientConnection

7/7/2014

Congratulations to the primary care team at PeaceHealth Medical Group’s Santa Clara clinic, which won a friendly systemwide competition to see who could newly enroll the most patients in PatientConnection, the new electronic medical records system that allows patients and providers easy online access to health records.


Since the start of the contest in February, PHMG Santa Clara has enrolled 183 patients per provider. That’s 14 more than the second-place winner, and far exceeds the systemwide goal of 100 or more per clinic. Santa Clara was one of six clinics to meet that goal and the only one in Oregon West Network. Caregivers at all six will get a free lunch as a reward.

PatientConnection activations now stand at just over 35,500 across PeaceHealth Medical Group’s three-state system. Although the contest is over, care teams should continue to explain to patients the benefits of PatientConnection and urge them to sign up.
