Practice Your Passion

 

The most medically vulnerable patients’ needs are hard to address in today’s fee-for-service system. Care is fragmented and in time-limited slots.

 

Complex and frail patients living with multiple co-morbidities benefit from additional care that comes to them. Care that is coordinated with their existing doctors and specialists.

 

Our physician-led teams specialize in house calls to bring medical care to patients where they reside and when they need it. Our multidisciplinary model includes physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, social workers, dietitians, behavioral health specialists, social workers, nurse care managers and care coordinators.

  • Perform urgent care visits in the home to avoid unnecessary ED transfers and hospital admissions
  • Leverage the support of nurse care manager, behavioral health, social work, pharmacy, and dietician to meet patients’ medical, biopsychosocial, and financial needs
  • In situations where there is no existing PCP for the patient, assume responsibility as PCP to drive care and continuity for patients
  • In situations where there is an existing PCP for the patient, help to co-manage the patient with the PCP and serve as an extension of clinical care into the home
  • Coordinate with other physicians across the continuum of care, including PCP, hospitalist, and SNF providers to smooth transitions and prevent readmissions
  • Coordinate and offer medical direction to community-based organizations touching the lives of our patients, including housing and caregiver agencies, health plan contracted social work services, home health, adult day health centers, and behavioral health
