The Benefits of IndexProTM: Closing gaps in care

July 7, 2020

We recently introduced a new article series, The Benefits of IndexPro. The series shows how you can use the reports and information on IndexPro as a supplement to the care you give to your patients, our members. You can read the previous tips in the Communications section of the dedicated PEAR portal page.

Tip of the week! Identifying patients with gaps in care

As practices start to resume in-person visits, now is the time to schedule visits for patients who may have gaps in care, such as well visits, cancer screenings, and diabetic care. The Gaps in Care feature on IndexPro makes it easy to identify patients who have a gap in care. You can prioritize outreach and scheduling to ensure that those patients receive continuous preventive care. You can also see how your completion rate of open gaps compares to that of your peers.
