Patients – the Choice Is Theirs

May 22, 2023 | PACHC News

Early next week, PACHC will be mailing the 2023 APEX Award Patient Choice nomination forms and posters to health centers across Pennsylvania. This year the mailings included English posters and forms for our sites as well as Spanish posters and forms if they were requested by your health center. Please make sure they’re posted at each of your sites and encourage patients to nominate the special health center staff who have made a difference in their lives and health for an APEX Patient Choice Award! We have also updated the poster to include a QR code for online patient choice submissions. PACHC is happy to provide your organization with a copy of the QR upon request for use on your social media accounts. Health centers are welcome to make as many copies of the nomination form as you would like as well as to assist with getting the applications mailed to PACHC by the deadline of Friday, June 30. Additional posters and forms are available in English or Spanish, please contact Carmen Anderson, Insurance Enrollment and Administrative Support Associate, to request additional patient choice nomination materials. The APEX Patient Choice Awards are one of the highlights of the APEX Awards luncheon during the PACHC Annual Conference & Clinical Summit on Oct. 10-12, 2023, at the Lancaster Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. While only patients can nominate health center staff for the Patient Choice Award, anyone can nominate individuals for the other APEX Award categories.
