2022 Stronger - P141 - Digital Intervention Increases Annual Wellness Visit Scheduling by 10% - On Demand
As a health system with a clinically integrated network managing nearly 150,000 patients under value-based contracts, Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin (F&MCW) understands the importance of preventive health maintenance in optimizing quality outcomes and efficient care delivery. The Medicare Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) is one such preventive visit that is underutilized, leaving a gap in important care planning for the patient and primary care team. F&MCW used an innovative digital outreach and scheduling strategy to dramatically increase the efficiency of patient outreach, leading to a 10% increase in AWV scheduling compared to previous years.
