Raising Readers

Raising Readers033017Franklin Memorial Hospital, Franklin Health Pediatrics, Farmington Family Practice and Livermore Falls Family Practice all participate in the Raising Readers program, the statewide network of hospitals and medical practices that gives books to Maine children.

Giving a book to each child at birth and at all well-child visits from two months to five years presents providers with the opportunity to stress to parents the importance of reading aloud to their child, and to give suggestions about how to use the books. Research shows that reading to children daily helps their brains grow and develop, and promotes literacy skills and educational attainment.

Pediatrician Dr. Gabriel Civiello serves as a clinical advisor for this program funded by the Libra Foundation, led and administered by MaineHealth in collaboration with Eastern Maine Health System, and with support from the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center.

Let's Go!

lets go 5210 logoLet’s Go! is a nationally recognized childhood obesity prevention program based in Maine, that encourages increasing servings of fruits and veggies each day; decreasing hours of recreational screen time; increasing physical activity; and avoiding sugary drinks. As a Let’s Go! Health Care Site of Distinction, Franklin Health Farmington Family Practice has Let’s Go! posters with the 5-2-1-0 message for daily behavior change in patient waiting rooms and all exam rooms; providers determine patients’ body mass indexes, percentiles and weight classifications; and providers use the 5-2-1-0 Healthy Habits Questionnaire at well-child visits as a tool to have a respectful conversation around healthy eating and active living.

Clinical Social Workers

Having clinical social workers alongside health care providers is a new model being used at Franklin Health primary care medical practices. Social workers perform behavioral health services on the spot, as well as by primary doctor referral, providing assessment and diagnosis, and brief counseling for patients of all ages.

Patient Portal

Access to a patient portal is given to all Franklin Health primary care patients with computer access. A patient portal is a secure online website that gives patients convenient 24-hour access to personal health information from anywhere with an Internet connection. Using a secure user name and password, patients can view their test results, office visit summaries, medication list, and request prescription refills and appointments. Patient portals enhance patient-provider communication, empower patients, support care between visits and, most importantly, improve patient outcomes.
