Patient Registries: An ACO Cornerstone

Excerpt from presentation by Dr. Gregory Spencer, chief medical officer with Crystal Run Healthcare:

"In addition to taking care of the patient in front of you, ACOs and value-based healthcare are driving forward to start thinking about groups of patients that you’re caring for, higher risk groups. [A registry] is useful clinically right from the beginning to think about a bigger picture view of your practice." Watch the webinar today or order a training DVD or CD-ROM.
