Exemplary Practice Story: Sunflower Ob-Gyn, Winfield
Sunflower Ob-Gyn—a clinic in Winfield and member of the Kansas Practice Transformation Network—began a program aimed at improving patient outcomes in hypertension, diabetes, and depression through weight loss. They called it "KDM Intense." Over 12 weeks, patients worked with a nutritionist, a trainer, a pharmacist, and staff at Sunflower to improve their diet, activity level, and blood pressure. The early results in the program have been impressive—including dramatic reductions in depression. Dr. Daniel Miller of Sunflower talks with Jill Daughhetee—Quality Improvement Advisor at Kansas Healthcare Collaborative—about the program and its early results.
