Fellowship is an honorary designation given to recognize ongoing individual service and contributions to the practice of medicine.
Dr. Thomas Hastings has achieved recognition as an Ideal Missouri Practice (IMP) Physician. Ideal Missouri Practice (IMP) is supported by a partnership between the Commonwealth Fund, Dartmouth Medical School, Primaris and BHC to bring Missouri primary care physicians patient-centered, collaborative care information and tools. Led by experienced faculty, physicians are guided through sequenced innovative steps, designed to introduce small and subtle changes to their patient encounters. After getting a feel for a patient’s readiness, physicians introduce How’s Your Health, a survey that quickly enables the physician to tap into relevant and current information about what matters most to the patient. Individually, the results improve communications between the physician and patient. In aggregate, IMP physicians use the data to better understand and improve their practice. By observing overall trends and common patient responses, physicians are scored in real-time by their patients.
Dr. Hastings has been selected by his peers for inclusion in Best Doctors in America ® from 2011 to 2020.
Dr. Hasting has been awarded Recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and the American Diabetes Association for patient care in Diabetes. NCQA, in partnership with the American Diabetes Association, developed the Diabetes Recognition Program to recognize clinicians who have met standards demonstrating delivery of high quality care to patients with diabetes.
Dr. Hastings is married to a physician. His many interests include spending time with his family, basketball, softball, and computers.
