GLHC – Patient Action Plans and the Statewide Community Patient Record

Healthcare providers across Michigan have focused resources and efforts on making patient action plans available in a statewide registry.   This action assures that treatment for specific disease states remains consistent wherever the patient is treated. Great Lakes Health Connect (GLHC) in Grand Rapids, MI, developed a web-based application that allows healthcare entities to upload action plans into the registry at no cost. In 2014, GLHC, in partnership with Dr. Susan Wakefield of Forest Hills Pediatrics successfully piloted a program that has contributed over 700 Asthma Action Plans to the GLHC state-wide health information exchange registry.  Planning is now underway to expand the program to additional action plans and providers across the state.
