Affinia Health: Clinical Model

We believe that care is best delivered when it is based on a relationship between the patient and a primary care physician who can coordinate their care. Primary care physicians are accountable for the care of a patient but rely on multiple team members with unique skills and perspectives to support the care of the patient including:

  • Care management to support chronic illness and complex care, as well as coordination of care between providers and episodes of care
  • Ambulatory to the pharmacists who can support increasingly costly and complex medical regimens
  • Behavioral health providers who can provide input on the 40% of primary care visits that are impacted by mental health issues
  • Care navigators who can help our patients navigate care during complex illnesses including cancer, neurologic disease, and other disorders
  • Community health workers who engage with their community and neighbors to connect patients to community services and healthcare providers

We support patient-centered care in which patients are informed of their options, and have their preferences taken into account during medical decision making

We understand that the cost of healthcare can be a barrier for many individuals and families and are committed to providing affordable high-quality care
