Group Practice Forum Launches Fromer-GPF Patient Journey Providing Physicians with Simple Solutions to Improve Patient Care
Date:7/8/2010

NEW YORK, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Group Practice Forum (GPF), an independent network of medical professionals, today announced the official launch of the Fromer-GPF Patient Journey, a proprietary workflow solution designed to provide primary care physicians with simple solutions to improve patient care.  The Journey was developed by the Executive Medical Director of GPF, Len Fromer, M.D., FAAFP, who also serves as Assistant Clinical Professor of Family Medicine at University of California at Los Angeles School of Medicine and Western University of Health Sciences.  

The Fromer-GPF Patient Journey is a team-based model that equips primary care physicians treating patients with chronic diseases with valuable tools that can be integrated into their practices immediately.  Using the Journey model, physicians and their patients can gain practical solutions to incorporate into a chronic disease care model; methods to improve patients' health literacy; improved quality of the patient-physician dialogue; and an enhanced journey to physician-supervised patient self-management.

"Primary care in the United States is currently in crisis. With misaligned financial incentives and an insufficient number of providers, we have an unsatisfactory system for both physicians and patients," said Dr. Fromer. "By arming healthcare providers with the tools they need, the Fromer GPF Patient Journey addresses the chronic care crisis, and improves quality of care for patients with chronic diseases.  Both physicians and patients can benefit greatly from the patient-centered, high-performing practice achieved by deploying the Journey model."

The Fromer-GPF Patient Journey was recently introduced at two prominent healthcare industry conferences.  At the 2010 CAPG Healthcare Conference, Dr. Fromer explained how the Journey can help healthcare systems and medical groups face the unique challenges that have created an inadequate and unsuccessful environment for healthcare professionals and patients.  In addition, over 500 participants from 50 countries attended the International Primary Care Respiratory Group Conference, where Dr. Fromer shared the benefits of the Journey to primary care physicians for the treatment of chronic diseases such as COPD.
