Overview

New Dimensions in Healthcare and Progressive Primary Care Solutions, Inc. plan to optimize primary care workflow, increasing primary care access and quality of care, while simultaneously improving patient, clinician, and staff satisfaction and reducing avoidable hospital use. New Dimensions anticipates serving an additional 200 unique Medicaid enrollees due to workflow efficiencies. Employment models predict a shortage of over 1 million nurses in 2024, and Progressive Primary Care Solutions Inc. (PPCS) seeks to keep nurses in practice by offering flexible and remote work options. Furthermore, PPCS seeks to streamline primary care visit workflows by providing an outsourced option for work that can be done in advance of a visit and work that does not require face to face patient contact.
