We believe in a collaborative approach that leverages the collective training, skills and knowledge of everyone involved with a resident’s care – from the physician and nurse practitioner to the onsite caregivers and staff.

“Being a nurse practitioner is like being a quarterback. We regularly huddle with Dr. Johnson, the nursing staff at the facility, social workers, other care providers and family members to make sure everyone understands the game plan. That means better coordination of care, more consistent care, and higher-quality care. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved!”

Collaborative Care Is Good Medicine

Residents who select Consultative Health and Medicine as their primary care provider have 24/7 access to a dedicated team of experienced health care professionals who believe that visiting seniors in their home environment, getting to know family members, and partnering with the caregivers who observe them day-in and day-out make a difference in the quality of care they receive.

This focused approach, which we refer to as “Coordinated Care,” and a commitment to open communication with all parties, helps prevent the “disconnects” that can occur when a patient is being treated for multiple medical conditions.

“If a weekend is coming or they have a day off, or if there is a particular resident they are worried about, they’ll leave a message for the on-call nurse saying, ‘This is our care plan for this person, and these are the goals the family has.’ It’s almost like they are one of the staff members here.
