Abstract: 
Despite the emphasis of primary care on preventive services over the past decade, and the reminder systems that are available to promote the provision of these services, many patients still do not receive needed services. This study describes the preventive services that the primary care practices of the Practice Partner Research Network (PPRNet) monitors, and documents adherence to them. Preventive services monitored in PPRNet practices and the levels of adherence to them vary by practice and service. The lower-than-desired levels of adherence offer opportunities for improvement interventions.
