Feasibility and Project Planning
FCH administrators sought a partner that could work within their organizational structure as well as offer solutions tailored to the unique needs of the community that they serve.
The Pinnacle team determined that Faith Community Hospital was in a strong position to be able to prevent and solve many of the health issues facing their community through the construction of a lifestyle medicine service line. A three phase plan was executed to:
1. Develop a thorough understanding and expertise in medical fitness delivery and generate care pathways that incorporated medical fitness into the care continuum
2. Develop appropriate education and marketing programs aimed at hospital staff and facilitate referral mechanism/triggers for support of new pathways
3. Optimize new pathways for efficiency and utilize data to determine efficacy and improvement opportunities
