Objectives: The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether Put Prevention Into Practice (PPIP) materials affected the delivery of 8 clinical preventive services.
Methods: Program materials were provided to a family medicine practice serving a diverse, low-income population. Appropriate use of clinical preventive services was assessed via medical record reviews at baseline, 6 months, 18 months, and 30 months at both intervention and control sites.
Results: The delivery rates of 7 clinical preventive services were higher in the intervention site at 6 months. These rates had flattened or decreased by 30 months.
Conclusions: Use of PPIP materials modestly improved delivery of certain clinical preventive services. Sustained improvement will require substantial system changes and ongoing support.
