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!
