EVMS Medical Group continues its journey and evolution as a high-quality medical home for the patients we serve. We pride ourselves on staying up to date on the latest and safest therapies, treatments, and technology. Our practices use an electronic health record (EHR) to serve patients faster and better. The EHR replaces the paper medical chart with secure computerized records. Through this certified EHR and reporting software, we continue to migrate to more clinically integrated care.
EVMS Medical Group has begun to focus on training the current workforce in the skills required to transform our healthcare delivery system. In our clinical practices, the nurses and medical assistants are being trained in higher-level team functions, such as population health, tracking hospital discharges, medication reconciliation, patient self-management, and smoking status and counseling. Our licensed nurses are training for proactive services, including the Medicare Wellness Visit for Medicare Beneficiaries. This visit provides a snapshot of a patient's current health, as a baseline for future yearly visits and is intended as a preventive service, a way of catching potentially serious health issues early.
We continue to develop and refine clinical protocols to provide more cost-effective quality care. Our goal is to focus on areas of health care that need improvement. Through these tools, we identify, collect, and communicate data on quality and look at the most effective strategies for continuously improving the quality of care we provide to our patients.
For more than four decades, EVMS has been the place for aspiring physicians and health professionals, passionate educators, and medical pioneers. In the 1960s, civic leaders in Hampton Roads sought to improve care in the region and created a bold dream to build a medical school. Thanks to determination and community commitment, EVMS opened its doors in 1973, forever transforming the healthcare landscape in Hampton Roads.
Today, EVMS holds a privileged position in American history as one of the only schools of medicine and health professions in the nation founded by a grassroots effort. The institution's steady growth from just 23 medical students to an organization with a more than $1.2 billion annual economic impact is an inspiring testament to what vision, community commitment, and innovation can accomplish.
