30 Medical Clinics 7 Dental Clinics 22 Behavioral Health In 38 locations throughout the state of NM
The diversity of services includes primary medical, dental, behavioral health, children's services, home care, hospice, and senior programs. These programs are delivered by PMS as a result of the organization's ability to respond to the unmet needs of those living throughout New Mexico. In 2007, the per capita income in New Mexico was $31,474, 19% lower than the national average, ranking the state 43rd in the nation. In the same year, approximately 96% of PMS clinic consumers are at or below 200% poverty.

Honestly– we didn’t have a clear communications, training or post implementation plan so ….
We are attempting to refuel mid flight– and we are not this good by any means
My Plan: – Develop a Communication plan Address preferred medium for communication Delineate a post- go live Needs Assessment Clearly define our Executive Champion

Develop a Clinical Decision Support Tool – Evaluate what our Vendor (NextGen) offers – Customize where needed – Create a message for providers on why we are doing this and what we hope to accomplish to support Benefits Realization Plan (which I am also working on developing…).
