Sydney City Business Award WINNER!
Glebe Family Medical Practice were the winners of the 2015 Sydney City Business Excellence in Innovation award.
This award recognises businesses that have made significant contributions to their industry through the introduction or improvement of an idea, method, technology, process or application.
Glebe Family Medical Practice run Quality improvement (QI) interventions and assess specific health measures to see if they can make a difference over the short and longer term. To do this, they use a specialised data extraction tool called PenCAT which helps them target specific issues or health campaigns using demographics such as age or illnesses. This was recently successfully implemented with the annual immunisation campaign and aligning it with a targeted screening for the presence of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) in the over 65 aged patients.
“This award is great recognition for all the hardworking staff at the Practice who work tirelessly to improve the health of our local community,” said Jacqui Ellsmore, Practice Manager, Glebe Family Medical Centre.
