F.L.I.P. (Fairfield Life Improvement Program)
This is a program that came to Fairfield Memorial Hospital through a three-year grant. FLIP is dedicated to improving the quality of patient care and chronic disease outcomes for patients with diabetes and cardiovascular disease. This will be accomplished through using an electronic patient registry from each doctor’s office here in Fairfield County. Our patients will be chosen from this list, which will allow us to implement the Chronic Care Model. Our goal is to improve selfcare for our patients who have or are at risk for diabetes through detection, education and patient follow-up care. Improved cardiovascular care will also be accomplished through prevention, early detection, and treatment of risk factors for heart attacks and strokes. We believe this will be a wonderful program to help our citizens with their diabetes/cardiovascular disease.
