Mille general practice governance (MilleGPG): an interactive tool to address an effective quality of care through the Italian general practice network

Prim Health Care Res Dev. 2013 Oct;14(4):409-12. doi: 10.1017/S1463423613000042. Epub 2013 Feb 22.


The General Practitioner (GP) is the "gate-keeper" in patients' treatment and management. Herein, the use of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) could represent an effective support for GPs. Software capable of managing EMRs are available and they can be functional in adopting treatment guidelines by means of computerized prompts and reminders systems. These tools can be also programmed to include clinical algorithms with which to measure the quality of care to make possible the identification of clinical issues, and to take actions for addressing them. Given that similar tools were not available in Italy, we developed MilleGPG, an interactive tool aimed to evaluate, and subsequently improve the quality of care among patients with comorbidities.
