Mission
To balance awareness, education, prevention, and intervention activities required to improve the health of a specified population. Population Health Improvement is the foundation of optimization efforts. This model unites self-care, Health Readiness Platform, worksite and community-based wellness and prevention activities and medical interventions into a comprehensive paradigm centered on primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention to reduce morbidity, premature morality and improve health.

Goal

To work in tandem with the patient, the provider/PCM and Provider Group Support Team while interfacing with all beneficiaries - patients and their families, ultimately to improve your access to care and to optimize your healthcare through interactive outreach efforts.

What We DO for YOU
We actively message our beneficiaries through audio-care calls, letters, reminder notice mailers, and secure messaging. We conduct several community events coordinated through EACH, ACS and MWR - outreach health and wellness fairs striving provide patient education and improve Access to Care by offering appointment booking and educational materials.
