Continued key quality measure progress by industry-leading practice
EMS World magazine’s April 2017 cover story is all about the Chen Senior Medical Center extended paramedic program pioneered with American Ambulance of Florida in 2015. Encounter data for that extended paramedic program is promising – especially because it reinforces the robust medical care available at Chen Senior Medical Centers Mondays through Fridays between 7:30 AM and 4:30 PM.
Sept. 22, 2016 -- ChenMed, the integrated medical practice providing affordable care and superior experience to tens of thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, today celebrates Centenarians’ Day by saluting both the 26 of its patients having lived beyond 100 years, as well as the 39 percent of its patients having already surpassed the average U.S.
"At-risk seniors and every Medicare Advantage health plan in America now have extra reasons to establish relationships with our rapidly growing medical practice," says Christopher Chen, MD, ChenMed Chief Executive Officer. "Dr. Jeffrey Kang joined ChenMed as President eight months ago, leveraging 30 years of extraordinary healthcare industry experience to accelerate our progress in transforming healthcare for some of the neediest populations. Now, with Jeff’s help, we’ve scored additional game-changing talent for our growing executive team."
"The medical community has long known that lack of medication adherence increases morbidity and mortality in ways that also create up to $170 billion in additional medical expenses each year," explains Jessica Chen, MD, Chief Quality Officer for ChenMed, a U.S. leader in providing affordable care and superior medical experience to seniors. "We strongly favor having our physicians investing the time needed to truly nurture relationships with patients, including real-time discussion of each and every prescribed medication."
