About the Clinical Prevention Initiative
The Clinical Prevention Initiative (CPI) is a collaboration of the New Mexico Medical Society and the New Mexico Department of Health and HealthInsight New Mexico. Its mission is to maximize the effectiveness and reach of high priority, evidence-based clinical preventive services delivered by New Mexico health care professionals, practices and health care systems. This mission includes reduction in health disparities of New Mexico's diverse population.
Created in 2000, CPI promotes and supports practice commitment and systems to best provide preventive care in physician offices. After a brief hiatus, CPI reorganized its program in 2014 with new funding from the NM Department of Health. A small executive committee, with two representatives from each of the sponsoring partners, operates under a new set of Governance Guidelines. The current focus of CPI is support of clinical preventive services that reduce Cardiovascular and Geriatric Risks of New Mexicans.
A published article provides more informaiton on the early history and accomplishments of CPI "The New Mexico Clinical Prevention Initiative: A Statewide Prevention Partnership" Public Health Reports/May-June 2007/Vol 122. In 2014 CPI completed a review of medical practice reporting needs and evidence-based strategies for reducing cardiovascular and geriatric risk. A survey of the state of clinical preventive services to reduce cardiovascular and geriatric risk in New Mexico practices is underwary.
