Optimization Team Focuses on Lead Screening for MedicaidJuly 21st, 2020 | Clinical Connections
The Optimization Team is engaging around Lead Screening this year, with a particular focus on patients covered under a Medicaid product. Focus on this population prioritizes gap closure for the most at-risk children, while contributing to optimal population health performance. We reached out to your practice in June to provide a patient list to help identify patients who still need a screening.
Point-of-care (POC) lead testing is a proven strategy for improving screening rates. If you are already performing POC lead screening, let us know if you need any support around workflow improvement or staff training. If you are not screening within the office, let us know if you would be interested in implementing POC screening. If you have any questions, please contact Senior Pediatric Care Manager for Quality Improvement Nancy Bellush.
