Primary Care Partners offers its patients a true medical home as part of a wide range of medical services available to area residents of Grand Junction, Colorado.
Having a medical home means patients can look to their physician to help them navigate a very complex medical world when they are in need of medical care. It reduces confusion, and more importantly, provides them with support and reassurance.
Included in the partnership are four family physician groups, a pediatrics group, mammography, x ray, a laboratory, nutritional services and diabetic education, an after-hours non-urgent care clinic, acupuncture services, physical therapy and sports medicine. Also embedded into the family practice groups, and led by your physician, are care coordinators who help more chronically-ill patients manage their care; as well as behaviorists who can address emotional/mental problems that block progress in managing your health.
We also offer assistance for smoking cessation, as well as health & wellness coaching.
Our Patient Portal offers patients online services such as scheduling appointments, requesting prescription refills, getting lab test results, and the ability to ask medical questions of their provider team. This translates into more convenience for the patient and more efficiency for our practices. The more patients engage with their providers and partner with them in their care, the better the outcomes.
Primary Care Partners is a recognized leader in practice innovations towards more effective, cost-efficient health care.
Innovative Practice Transformation
Primary Care Partners works with SIM (State Innovation Model), CPC (Comprehensive Primary Care) and other organizations to offer a better team approach to primary care that improves value based payment reform. Team members include physicians, physician assistants, medical assistants, a clinical pharmacologist, case coordinators, front office staff, behavioral health specialists and administrators. All work together toward better patient care for a better value. This approach to primary care strives for goals like a reduction in opioid use though function based assessments and preventing unnecessary emergency room visits.
