Patient centered, team based care

Dignity Health Medical Group incorporates ‘Team-based Care’ - to accomplish shared goals and achieve coordinated, high-quality care." .Team-based care is a patient-centered approach designed to make primary care more comprehensive and accessible, thereby meeting important needs of patients and families. Our provider team includes physician faculty, residents, and medical students working together to optimize patient outcomes and experience. Our residents are all medical school graduates specializing in family medicine.

Our provider team works together to provide care for a panel of patients. Additional team members complement our providers such as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, care managers, dietitians, pharmacists, medical assistants, behavioral health specialists and social workers—as well as nonclinical staff, such as receptionists and health coaches. Our providers and staff are then organized into standardized teams that provide care to different patient – those teams are labeled by a color – Purple, Blue, Yellow and Green. Patients ‘join’ our team as they are assigned to a ‘color’ team when scheduled as a new patient.

Our clinic then works going forward as an integrated team to make sure you have comprehensive clinical care focused on coordination, efficiency, effectiveness. This approach offers many potential advantages including expanded access to care (more hours of coverage); additional services that are essential to providing high-quality care, such as patient education, behavioral health, and care coordination. Fundamental to this approach is drawing on the expertise of a variety of provider team members, to improve problem solving, data driven and continuous quality improvement approaches to care. We are excited to have you join our team!

Integrated healing

Behavioral health conditions often affect medical illness, yet in most situations behavioral health issues are addressed independently of other medical conditions.. DHMG believes that the way to remedy this condition is to integrate behavioral healthcare into the primary care environment. “Integrated behavioral healthcare” blends care into one setting for medical conditions and related behavioral health factors that affect the health and well-being of our patients. The goal of integrated behavioral healthcare is to further our mission to treat the "whole person” while simultaneously reducing cost of care. Moving to an integrated model for behavioral health is a core function of the “advanced Patient-Centered Medical Home.” 

Teaching tomorrow's doctors

Our department is a highly respected training site for medical students who are a part of the growing programs at Creighton University Medical School and Maricopa Integrated Health System (MIHS). Our family medicine practitioners work to provide exceptional care for their patients, while assisting in the training and coaching of future talent as well. Our team is dedicated to ensuring the next generation of physicians is fully prepared to provide the best possible care to families in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
