In an effort to become a national leader in quality and to ensure our patients are engaged in their care, the centralized Primary Care Support (PCS) team was established to assist the clinic providers and staff with reminding patients of needed care for specific chronic diseases and preventative screenings. Through proactive management of these patients, we will be reducing the likelihood of them developing long term complications.
