In a recent episode of the Creating a New Healthcare podcast, a series exploring new solutions for primary care physician leaders, ChenMed CEO Dr. Chris Chen spoke with Dr. Zeev Neuwirth, senior medical director of population health at Atrium Health. The episode, “Affordable Concierge Primary Care – Honoring Seniors & Delivering Better Health Outcomes,” offers an in-depth look at the ChenMed model and how it benefits patients handling chronic conditions.
At JenCare Senior Medical Center, we honor seniors with affordable VIP care that delivers better health. Committed to giving our patients industry-leading access to primary care physicians and specialist doctors, we nurture the outstanding physician-patient relationships and collaboration that is so vital to optimizing health outcomes. JenCare rates of emergency room visits and hospital stays, like those of other ChenMed medical centers operating in six states, are significantly lower than the average among comparable Medicare beneficiaries.
At ChenMed, we see each day how value-based care leads to better outcomes for the seniors who visit our centers. As a full-risk Medicare Advantage provider, ChenMed provides our patients with more access to care, more convenience in accessing it, and more preventive services. For example, at ChenMed, our physicians have patient panel sizes that are less than one-fifth the size of the national average (450 vs. 2,300). This care leads to exceptional results, with ChenMed rates of emergency room visits 33.6 percent lower than the average among comparable Medicare beneficiaries.
