Case managers, hired recently by Palmetto Primary Care Physicians, will help reduce gaps in care, such as missed appointments with specialists, lack of transportation, and medication non-compliance. They also will perform outreach, such as registering patients for wellness clinics, scheduling appointments with specialists and monitoring medical effects. The clinical quality goals will be monitored by measuring blood sugar levels and cholesterol levels.

Electronic medical records will be a key component for delivering comprehensive care. Palmetto Primary Care Physicians uses software, at the point of care, that integrates information received from the health plan, case manager and local emergency rooms. This i
