Mercy Clinics is among 30 clinics nationwide selected as an Exemplar Primary Care Practice by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Group Health Research Institute. The Primary Care Team: Learning from Effective Ambulatory Practices (LEAP) project identifies primary care practices that have focused on teamwork and new roles for health professionals in ways that support consistently outstanding primary care. A LEAP team recently conducted a three-day site visit at the Mercy Indianola Family Medicine and Urgent Care clinic. The exemplary practices within Mercy Clinics, the only Iowa primary care practice selected for the initiative, will be used to develop creative workforce models that will be disseminated to other primary care practices nationwide.
