Poor communication between health care providers and patients can lead to significant deleterious consequences, ranging from heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. Conditions such as these are among the most costly, and preventable of all health problems. As such, programs that aim to improve this communication may lead to heightened early diagnosis and the prevention of chronic condition. One possible solution may include modifying the preliminary intake forms patients are asked to submit before the doctor visit. My model will be grounded on the Clinical/Community Population Health Intervention Model. I plan to create a new format for the current form that will inquire about health, improve assessment of priority health issues, and enable the patient to take action. Outcomes of the new form will become a collective database for future prevention, diagnosis, and technique or improved communication.
