Our partnership with Patient Care Therapy Group

Our partnership with Patient Care Therapy Group

We are excited to announce our partnership with Patient Care Therapy Group who will focus on strategically educating and proactively addressing fall prevention and conditions that may delay the optimization of all resident outcomes. PCTG will apply a functional medicine approach to all care plans and design preventative & rehabilitative solutions to combat all movement, cognitive, physical, and language disorders; in the most natural way possible and in the most ideal setting; a resident’s home environment. By infusing holistic clinical practice with functional medicine, all residents they serve will be able to add life to their years while having fun!

Leading the charge, Therapy Program Manager Adam Nadle & lead Physical Therapist, Dr. Ryan Schoenborn, PT, DPT will be spearheading our local efforts as we look to serve and protect the functional independence of our seniors.

If you keep up with the news, you may have seen headlines like these: “Doctor shortage may reach 120,000 by 2030,” “How can we remedy the shortage of health care providers?” and “US faces looming shortage of primary care physicians.” — Given the importance of primary care, this isn’t good news.

The Future of Team-Based Health Care—

P.T.s aren’t seeking to replace primary care physicians but are able to provide primary health care within the scope of their training and expertise, which is low-cost, low-risk, and proven effective for many common medical conditions. Primary care providers in team settings need to be able to evaluate and manage a wide variety of injuries, illnesses, and disorders. No one profession can do it all. An ideal primary care team will be able to triage and direct the patient to the right team member. For example, chronic back pain would be referred to the team’s physical therapist, the flu symptoms referred to the nurse practitioner, and the more obscure symptoms referred to the physician.

If this model has worked for the military for over 50yrs, why is it taking so long to be practiced with civilians? Thankfully, with Patient Care Therapy Group and our collaboration with Patient Care Medical Group the wait is now over!

People with great passion can make the impossible happen. As we age, it is not uncommon for communication skills to decline. However, with the help of speech therapy, seniors can improve their communication abilities and enhance their overall quality of life. Seniors can enhance cognitive abilities and memory through speech therapy exercises, with the goal of improving daily living activities and social interactions through improved communication.

Patient Care Therapy Group believes that success is not a big step taken in the future, but rather a small step taken now. We love our patients. We love what we do. Frailty, we’re coming for you!

The Future of Medicine is in the hands of those that are able to integrate technology and biology.

Our partners at Patient Care Medical Group have realized the power of virtual care by providing all of our patients with an end to end Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) platform that allows patients to measure and securely transmit vital data to their provider. This allows our teams to manage the health of our patients in accordance with their individualized care plan. Seamlessly, our clinicians are able to make preventive adjustments as needed — offering our partners with innovative solutions that promote the future of care, improves the patient experience while providing much needed peace of mind.

The US healthcare system ranks 40th in the world amongst all developed countries—right behind Mexico—while having the TOP ranked physicians in the world — This dichotomy creates a strong indictment in exposing the care gaps of a fragmented healthcare culture.

Patient Care Medical Group was founded on the basis of effective Care Coordination. We choose to invest our clinical efforts with an abundance of action at the interdisciplinary level. This is why we consider Our Transitional Care Navigators to be the key architectural champions supporting our medical infrastructure. While poor care coordination can be life threatening, effective care coordination can be lifesaving!

The COVID-19 pandemic and its economic aftermath, have only accelerated the evolution of healthcare ecosystems. These shifts have created an imperative for stakeholders to move towards an ecosystem-based model. Our partners at Patient Care Medical Group are transcending healthcare by preventing and managing chronic conditions through human innovation.

Our Ecosystem has created a powerful force that is reshaping and disrupting the industry, putting the patient first. The patient must be at the center of transitional care. Our largest struggle is not with the patient who takes their medication regularly, but with the patient who does not engage in their own care. Technology and a caring hand can be the drivers that excite a patient with the prospect of wellness.

In healthcare, we now have the potential to deliver a personalized and integrated experience to our consumers, while enhancing provider productivity, engaging formal/informal caregivers, and improving both outcomes and affordability.
