How Do PEAs Work with Practices?
- Usually assigned 8 practices and visit each one every other week—1 day per week meet with other PEAs to discuss projects and share ideas.
- Begin by meeting staff, developing relationships, and observing practice function.
- Recommend that practices implement weekly staff meetings—attend and facilitate as needed.
- Provide any office assistance they can to build relationship, e.g., provide patient education materials, BMI charts; file charts; data entry.
