ChenMed is transforming health care for seniors. We provide big answers to big problems in health care delivery.
Today’s primary care physician treats patients who are diverse in age, acuity and ability to pay. A typical primary care practice serves everyone from the 22-year-old college student who needs a physical to the 40-year-old mother of three with a sinus infection to the 75-year-old man suffering from hypertension, diabetes, heart failure, kidney disease and the effects of a recent stroke. But different types of patients have different needs. Because of this, ChenMed has transformed our approach.
ChenMed is a full-risk primary care market leader with an innovative philosophy, unique physician culture and end-to-end customized technology. These things allow us to provide world-class primary care and coordinated care to the most vulnerable population – moderate- to low-income seniors who have complex chronic diseases.
Through our innovative operating model, physician-led culture and empowering technology, we are able to drive key quality and cost outcomes that create value for patients, physicians and the overall health system.
Our model allows us to practice medicine the way it should be practiced. By recruiting focused physicians and reducing their doctor-to-patient ratios, we increase patients’ “face time” during each monthly appointment and help foster stronger doctor-patient relationships. Our model also drives and enhances compliance with treatment plans.
As a result of our efforts, our patients realize lower hospital admissions. Their overwhelming response to our approach is reflected in our aggressive, organic growth and net promoter scores in the low to mid 90s, which is unheard of in any industry.

As a company, we are making a difference in the lives of seniors and the health care system overall.
