Congratulations to everyone who ran or walked in the Child Awareness Walk/5K Run on Saturday, April 28th in Hancock. We're proud that many of our patients participated in this event. Several of them placed within their age category: Beth Demory placed 3rd in the 26-35 group; Kirk Layton placed 1st in the 36-45 group; Paul French placed 1st in the 46+ and our own Dr. Hahn placed 3rd in that group as well! We're proud of you all and proud of our community for supporting this cause.

We wrote last year about our practice becoming a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH). Just recently we earned national recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance. This required our practice to reach and document certain benchmarks. Studies have shown that this model can cut medical costs, and lead to increases quality of care and satisfaction among providers and their patients. The article about Hahn and Nelson's recognition is here, and you can read more about the PCMH model in this article.

In case you weren't aware, not only is your doctor an accomplished medical practitioner, he is also an avid promoter of the Ideal Medical Practice model that Hahn and Nelson Family Medicine exemplifies. His team at Oxbow has developed a state-of-the-art Electronic Medical Record software program that facilitates much of the record keeping at our practice. He's also the Western District Director of the Maryland Academy of Family Practice, and a member of their Technology Committee. And as you can see in this article, he loves to write about what he believes.
