Organization: Oak Street Health
Title: Primary Care Physician
Oak Street Health is an innovative network of 15 neighborhood primary care centers in the Midwest focused on providing high quality care to older adults. We are not concierge medicine: we offer this high level of service to our patients at no additional cost to them; it's covered by Medicare regardless of their ability to pay. Our goal is not volume or billing/claims: it's quality. We agree that excellent care means low hospital admissions, great preventive medicine, and a delightful patient experience. We want physicians and clinical staff who are intrinsically motivated to provide this kind of excellent care to older adults. Because of the high population of Spanish-speaking patients at our clinic in Berwyn, we require all staff to be bilingual in Spanish.
We start simple: build meaningful relationships with patients and their families, then layer on resources to help our teams take excellent care. Our physicians practice with a full team behind them; each care team is made up of:
--- Registered Nurse
--- Medical Assistant
--- Clinical Informatics Specialist (i.e., a ---scribe--- to manage documentation)
--- Care Manager
--- Nurse Practitioner
Our facilities are all new, designed around this model of comprehensive, personalized primary care. We use cutting edge technology and population health tools to improve care quality and make life easy for our providers. Oak Street Health is the future of medicine, where care is coordinated thoughtfully and providers are rewarded for personalized care.
