NYC REACH Newsletter, September 2018 (Volume 1, Issue 3)
In this issue, we provide an overview of changes to the Meaningful Use program in performance year 2019 and dedicate a full feature to new requirements related to the use of electronic health record systems.
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has launched a campaign to address gaps in depression treatment, so we share new care recommendations and resources designed to support primary care providers in addressing depression in their patients.
Finally, we include an interview with Emmanuel Fashakin, MD, who runs Abbydek Family Medical. He discusses the practice’s experience with NYC REACH-supported programs and how becoming a patient-centered medical home has improved his practice.
