While at PeaceHealth Medical Group in Longview, Washington, Dr. Reardon developed a highly successful program to facilitate medication refills for chronic pain patients. She was also Physician Lead for the Access Project, which provided better access to primary care in the region.

Additionally Dr. Reardon was instrumental in instituting a collaborative process called the Care Team Huddle. She and her medical assistant became a model for other providers and co-developed an informational video on the process.
