PPRNet - Primary (Care) Practices Research Network
Practice Performance Reports and Provider and Patient Level Reports
PPRNet Reports can be a valuable tool to aid practices in a variety of ways. For example, for evaluating practice and provider performance, identifying patients at risk or overdue for preventive care, engaging, motivating and incentivizing the practice team and demonstrating the quality of care for improvement of patient outcomes and for quality recognition and incentive programs.

Participation in PPRNet Quality Improvement Projects
Many PPRNet practices participate in quality improvement projects led by PPRNet investigators. Current and prior projects have been focused on improving cardiovascular disease outcomes, colorectal cancer screening, medication safety, and alcohol screening in PPRNet practices. Practices participating in these projects often receive site visits to help prioritize performance, better use the electronic health record (EHR), involve all staff, and activate patients.
