Northwest Primary Care and Athena Health Network
Northwest Primary Care has partnered with Athena Health Network starting this July. We will be utilizing a new Electronic Medical Record system that will allow you, the patient, to view your labs, x-ray reports, and other health information online through a HIPAA secure portal. It will also allow us to contact you via secure E-mail or text, as well as with the traditional phone contact. The new system will allow you to schdule your own appointments online, and we will now have operators able to schedule or answer billing questions available after hours. Check out the AthenaNet Patient Portal .
We now offer Chronic Care Management
A new program from Medicare provides some really great services to help you manage your chronic conditions. This program is available to Medicare patients with 2 or more chronic conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, or COPD, to name a few. We believe that this program could really help to manage your chronic conditions.

Here are the benefits of the program:

• We’ll create a care plan that is custom designed to meet your needs, and you will receive a copy.
• We’ll do a full assessment of your health needs.
• Every month, we’ll check in to make sure things are going well.
• You’ll continue to have access to your provider who can address your conditions 24/7.
• We will try to address your issues outside the office, resulting in fewer office visits and fewer hospital admissions.

Before we start, we need you to consent to the following:

• We may share your information with your other providers, like your other specialists or home health, and this may be done electronically
• Only one office can provide this service to you during a 30-day period
• You agree that Northwest Primary Care will be that one provider.
• You can cancel or revoke this service at any time by talking with our staff. We’ll provide you a form to sign if you decide to cancel.
• Depending on your insurance, you may be billed for a small portion of the Chronic Care Management service. In many cases, the service is free without co-pay. In some cases, there is an $8/month co-pay. We’ll let you know which applies to you. In the long term, this service is designed to help reduce office visits and hospital admissions, and saves you money in the long term.
Having your blood drawn?
There is no limit to the amount of water, black coffee or plain tea that you can drink prior to the blood draw. In fact, we encourage you to drink prior to your visit, since this makes having your blood drawn much easier. If you need to be fasting for the test, then you should not eat for 6 hours before the blood is taken.
New On-Site Lab Hours
Starting January 2017, our laboratory has new hours.

Monday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
Tuesday closed
Wednesday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
Thursday closed
Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm

These modifications are implemented due to personnel and scheduling issues. These changes are consistent with other local labs. The local hospitals labs no longer run outpatient lab locally, but are sending the blood to Toledo or Cleveland to be processed. We will continue to process your blood testing in our office, and are committed to keeping your healthcare and lab testing local. However, we must make adjustments in order to continue operating our lab. We recommend that you come several days prior to your scheduled appointment on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday to have your blood drawn. That way, the results are ready when you come for your appointment. If you come to the office on a Tuesday or Thursday, your blood will be processed on the next day the lab is open.
Are You Disposing of Your Syringes Properly?
A new public education program by the Ottawa-Sandusky-Seneca Solid Waste District is designed to educate residents about the danger of improper disposal of needles used by diabetics and others who use needles for medical reasons. Please follow these guidelines: Never place an exposed needle in your trash bag where a garbage person may get stuck. Use a Sharp's container to dispose of your syringes. These containers are available at some pharmacies and medical supply stores. If you do not have a Sharp's container use a wide mouth heavy plastic cotainer with a tight lid such as a detergent or fabric softner container. When the container is two-thirds to three-fourths full, tightly close the container and seal the container with masking or heavy adhesive tape. For more information call 410-334- 7222 or toll free 1-888-850-7224.
