As part of Summit's value-based care initiatives, our Patient Care Coordination teams serve as an extension of our office staff, connecting with patients beyond our office doors to provide comprehensive, continuing care as we seek to produce better patient experiences, foster improved population health and reduce costs.
Summit Patient-Provider Coordinated Care Teams
Supported by strong data analytic tools, Summit's patient-centered care coordination teams enhance care for patients while helping our providers meet a variety of administrative and quality challenges.
Patients receiving assistance from these teams are contacted by Summit's Central Scheduling Department to schedule needed visits and/or screenings.
