Abstract

Objectives. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether Put Prevention Into Practice (PPIP) materials affected the delivery of 8 clinical preventive services. Methods. Program materials were provided to a family medicine practice serving a diverse, low-income population. Appropriate use of clinical preventive services was assessed via medical record reviews at baseline, 6 months, 18 months and 30 months at both intervention and control sites. Results. The delivery rates of 7 clinical preventive services were higher in the intervention site at 6 months. These rates had flattened or decreased by 30 months. Conclusions. Use of PPIP materials modestly improved delivery of certain clinical preventive services. Sustained improvement will require substantial system changes and ongoing support.
