    July 13, 2020
    “We want to look at the care of our patients in a proactive way instead of being reactive,” said Community Health Director of Quality Tracy Upton, RN. “Our Population Health program focuses on specific populations and how to create interventions to address gaps in care or missed opportunities.”Population health is a relatively new term that was developed to focus on the health of a particular population, noting special needs, trending gaps and inequalities in care, and taking into account environmental, economic and social impacts on the health of a population.

  • Getting the Right Care in the Right Place Starts with Primary Care
    June 11, 2020
    Deciding what care is needed and where to go to get that care was complicated by COVID-19 contagion concerns. Community Health Associate Medical Director for Express Care Dr. Jennifer Hanson said the broad categories still apply – Is this a chronic care visit with my primary care doctor? Is this an Express Care visit where I can I just walk in? What is an emergency situation that needs a higher level of care and should be seen in the emergency department at a hospital? Would a virtual Telehealth visit with a smartphone or computer be sufficient?

  • Primary Care means medical, dental, behavioral health in one Community Health location
    June 5, 2020
    “So many families have a belief about mental health services that it’s really for only when you are in an acute crisis.,” said Anne Hopkinson, LICSW, the social worker at Community Health Shorewell. “That would be the only time when you would see mental health services.” Hopkinson, who grew up in Addison County, says it’s important to understand that culturally, people in rural Vermont see behavioral health as separate from physical health and wellness. But it didn’t take long for them to understand that behavioral health is an integral part of primary care and overall wellness.

  • Home Grown Medical Assistants

    “If the company can take the employees they have and increase their intelligence and give them more knowledge and skill I think it’s a fantastic opportunity for all involved,” said Laura Pelletier, a 2019 graduate of the Medical Assistant Training Program at Stafford Technical Center in Rutland. “I can’t go to nursing school full time,” said the mother of three. “I have to work. Being able to work and do schooling was great. Community Health was flexible with hours and they changed things around for us. They worked hard for us.”

  • School Nurses Connect Through Telemedicine
    May 21, 2020
    The Community Health-Fair Haven Grade School telemedicine partnership was serendipitous, and according to Schneider, the perfect timing was the result of the immediate and total buy-in on both sides. Community Health’s mission to make health care available to the underserved community of young children in the area melded with the educators’ goal to keep children healthy and in school and learning. Schneider and two provider colleagues at Community Health Pediatrics, Dr. Indra Lovko and Nurse Practitioner Amy Pfenning, were committed to the program and were as excited about it as the school nurses.
