Mission: Improve patient outcomes by identifying and disseminating the best evidence available, to support health care professionals in providing optimal care for their patients.
Programs: Alosa health is the national nonprofit leader in developing and implementing programs of academic detailing to improve prescribing. We believe that medical decisions should be based on unbiased, evidence-based information that helps prescribers make appropriate clinical decisions based on the best available data. The model uses specially trained clinical educators who meet one-on-one with physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants (at their practice locations), to discuss the most recent clinical data on a particular primary care topic. This approach provides an effective and convenient way for providers to stay up-to-date on the latest clinical research findings, with the ultimate goal of improving prescribing decisions and patient care.
