Through an ongoing relationship and consistent dialogue with a personal physician who oversees their comprehensive care and leads a team that supports their needs, the model is designed to enable patients to feel supported in their health and wellness goals. Pioneer Physicians Network patients participating in Paradigm Senior Care Advantage also will have access to services and resources including:
- Team support for chronic conditions
- Coordinated care with other health professionals and services
- Hospital transitions service
- Cancer screenings and preventive care visits
- Referrals to other specialists and health professionals
- Patient outreach about upcoming or needed appointments

"Our physicians are now able to spend time with their patients, addressing their concerns and needs through a coordinated approach that involves specialists and other health professionals. Importantly, this partnership aims to improve outcomes while driving down costs for members and health plans while giving our physicians the resources to keep practicing. We look forward to making great strides in the care of our members over the next year and into the future."
