2 year commitment

Helping patients and their families build healthier habits is a group effort, and one that companies like Physicians Computer Company (PCC) stepped up to do. PCC, along with Cerner and GE Healthcare, teamed up with PHA to develop the Healthy Weight Plan, which provides doctors with tools to identify, manage and track childhood obesity.

On March 7, 2013, PCC, which provides electronic health record (EHR) services uniquely designed for pediatrics, joined in a commitment to PHA. As part of the Healthy Weight Plan, PCC’s aim is to help capture relevant data to track at-risk patients, present data and practical goals to patients and families in a way they can understand and provide information about community resources to help support healthy weight goals. At the time of partnering with PHA, PCC’s commitment had the potential to impact millions of doctor visits per year and hundreds of thousands of patients and families.
