Patient Outreach

Meadow Family Medicine runs frequent reports in an effort to ensure quality care. These reports are meant to capture the attention of members of our patient population who have not yet received various services, tests, screenings, vaccinations, etc. Our office staff places reminder calls, sends reminder letters, and utilizes the Patient Portal in an effort to provide quality care. We have included some of our outcomes on this website. Please take a moment to review our results. We hope this information explains why you may have experienced an increase in outreach attempts from this practice.
