Their pediatricians are now practicing in this location, on the same campus. The population health department at Mathews-Vu Medical Group, which assists all patients with coordinating their medical care, has expanded. This team focuses on the acute and chronic needs of patients who are medically complex, and facilitates transition of care. Urgent Care is now open seven days a week to offer same-day access for patients.

 

Population health strategy: Medicare CPC+ program

 

Participation in the CPC+ program through the UCHealth Integrated Network improves health care access for patients, addressing barriers to medical care, improving workflow, and facilitating communication between providers and patients. The perpetual goal is to increase value of care and improve quality of life for all patients.
