Imagine a group of doctors focused on helping you get well, stay well or manage an ongoing health condition. These doctors choose to be part of Value-Based Care programs and they work together for your overall health and peace of mind. What this can mean for you is:

  • Better coordination between doctors
  • Better control of chronic conditions
  • More preventive care
  • Fewer unnecessary services

 

Let’s look at few scenarios

You’re pretty healthy and want to stay that way: Your doctor helps ensure you have preventive screenings and immunizations, lowering your risk for more serious health issues down the road.

 

You have an ongoing condition, like diabetes or asthma: Your doctor is with you every step, taking care of your treatments and coaching you along the way.

 

You’re sick and not sure what to do: Simply call your doctor’s office. Your doctor will guide and support you, helping you to feel better faster.

 

You need hip or knee surgery: Your doctors coordinate care to manage your therapies and treatments, making it easier to get back on your feet.

 

We know your health needs change over time. You can expect more from Value-Based Care.

  • A primary care doctor to guide your health care journey to help prevent more serious medical conditions later in life.
  • A team that works with your other doctors to help ensure that you get the right care, at the right time.
  • Convenient care. Many doctors have same day appointments, after-hours care and electronic communications.
