Indicator Report - Routine Medical Care Visits

Why Is This Important?

Clinical preventive services are important for maintaining good health. Early detection and treatment of disease improve the chances of full recovery. Physician counseling can influence health behaviors and prevent disease entirely in many cases. It is especially important for persons in poor health to have a primary physician who understands their medical history and problems and can give them appropriate care that fits their medical and social context.
