How do I start?

Getting started on a new project can be the most daunting aspect. To find tools and resources to help you initiate a PFCC program for your practice, go to the Search page and choose the Initial Assessment filter as the Content type. There will you find checklists and other materials you can use to get started.

How do I get patients engaged?

Patient engagement is essential for a PFCC program. On the Search page choose the Engage Leadership and Patients filter as the Content type. There you will find resources such as case studies and brochures to encourage patient involvement.

How do I get my practice partners involved?

A PFCC program requires all partners in the practice to be on board. Find resources such as roadmaps and process models to bring to the practice strategy meeting. Go to the Search page and select the Strategic Planning as the Content type.

What information can I present to patients and partners?

Providing information keeps the PFCC program running. On the Search page choose the Education Tools filter as the Content type to find videos, activities and case studies to keep your patients and partners informed.

How do I know it is working?

Determine if your PFCC program is working. Use the resources and tools on the Search page to get information on what data should be collected and how to collect that data. Choose the Evaluation filter as the Content type.
