PHO objectives include:

  • Continue to provide practice support services (coding, compliance)
  • Promote legislative advocacy
  • Pursue PHO clinical integration strategy

Annual dues are $250. If you have any questions regarding the PHO, please call Christopher Dooley, Executive Director, at 401-736-4279 or e-mail him at cdooley@carene.org
