Below are unsolicited comments we have received:

Frederick S. Kelsey, MD, FACP: It is a very powerful tool, what's so nice about is its very intutive. It lays it out in a way where you can say," I want to know this" and take you right to it very easily.... You can go to a problem and see a list of particular tools... and it takes you to the direct source. It reduces the time spent floundering looking for answers... I have been very impressed.

Deb Peartree: I am getting responses like, “I knew it was helpful, but didn’t realize how rich a resource it really is! I am going to go back and dig in!” It really is an awesome tool and if they won’t go to the mountain…than the mountain is coming to them! So – just wanted to say thank you! It’s working!

Pamela A. Eckardt: Just in the last couple days, I received a request for access from 3 more practices so we are still promoting it…. The practices who have been most engaged and using the tool have found it very helpful.

Dr. Christopher Nickerson: Practice Advisor is a great resource. I have the troops doing a couple of modules per month for learning purposes, and we discuss them. In terms of implementation, we are meeting with site mgrs/lead docs to build the culture, modify the workflows. It takes consistency and patience….but Practice Advisor is great.

Cheryl Harkin: I must say that I was impressed with the program. It offered an easy way to answer questions through the biopsies as well as some great information on the topic areas. I did not have any trouble navigating the system and was able to complete all the biopsies which highlighted the areas that we need to work on. I think it will be a great resource for the process (PCMH recognition). I did like the analysis that is produced after completing the biopsies and the fact that it directs you to examples of policies etc to use as a guide. I am sure I will be referencing those again!
