Summit Medical Group is participating
in the US Department of Health and Human Services 
Meaningful Use Program.

As part of the program, we will soon be asking you for information
about your racial background, ethnicity, and primary language
during your doctor visits. 
We also will request your email address.



The information will allow us to improve our electronic communications
and host a more complete and accurate medical record. 

Although the information is designed to improve health care delivery,
you may decline our request.
