Teaming Up to Provide Quality,
Coordinated Care to Your Clients
Four New York City and Long Island medical groups with whom EmblemHealth has had long-standing relationships have come together to form AdvantageCare Physicians, P.C., one of the largest physician-led practices in the New York metropolitan area. AdvantageCare Physicians includes:
Manhattan's Physician Group
Preferred Health Partners (Brooklyn)
Queens-Long Island Medical Group
Staten Island Physician Practice
The practice has more than 400 EmblemHealth network primary care physicians and specialists and 2,300 staff in 36 community-based locations throughout New York City. Based on a model developed by EmblemHealth, the practice is designed to improve coordination of care, produce better outcomes and higher levels of patient satisfaction.
A Team-Based Approach to Care
At AdvantageCare, doctors work in teams that include nurses, social workers, nutritionists, behavioral health specialists and other professionals to deliver evidence-based, integrated services. Care navigators help patients address issues such as getting and understanding their medications, dietary needs, transportation and medical follow-up. Patients will be encouraged to partner with their care team in pursuit of a common goal: better health.
Services Integrated with the Communities They Serve
Each AdvantageCare Physicians location will integrate its services with those of the community it serves. By doing so, service offerings can be customized to support culturally competent care delivery. Care locations will also provide access to health and wellness education and health screenings, which can help members assess health risks and make informed choices.
EmblemHealth Chief Medical Officer William Gillespie, MD will serve as President and CEO of AdvantageCare Physicians. According to Dr. Gillespie, "Our goal is to create a professional clinical community dedicated to using a team approach to coordinate care for the health and well-being of their patients."
