Abstract

Missed clinic appointments have negative effects on the patients who skip those appointments, the clinic itself and the entire clinic population as a whole. Simply discharging those patients with flagrant absenteeism is not an option at clinics that are their only option. The targeting of strategies to those who frequently miss visits first requires their identification. This project sought to identify and characterize the "no show cohort" at the EMMC Family Medicine Center and Residency in Bangor, ME.
