Oak Street Health Becomes a Leader in the Community Health Market
While a public offering is not required, it may not have happened without the COVID-19 virus. With a focus on quality care, Oak Street Health’s home teams analyze social determinants of health, such as the risk of falls, and treat those with mobility issues. The company plans to open additional hubs in Texas and Mississippi this year. It is also pursuing a multi-disciplinary model for its care.
The company’s clinics focus on older adults on Medicare. Its telehealth services are available at locations across the DFW Metroplex, including 4801 South Cooper Street in Arlington. The other locations are at 1213 East Trinity Mills Road in Carrollton and 8840 Benbrook Boulevard in Benbrook. All three Oak Street clinics are focused on primary care, and are open seven days a week. Despite their limited availability, they are still able to treat a wide range of ailments.
With its network of value-based primary care centers, Oak Street Health has begun organizing “Meet Me at the Neighborhood” events for older adults. The free events are organized by nearly 100 centers in 15 states and are intended to help older people socialize in a friendly environment. The community health services of Oak Street Health provide social support, transportation, and advanced technology. Patients will be able to meet their providers face-to-face and receive personalized preventive care plans.
The company opened its first center in South Carolina this spring, and announced plans to expand into Kentucky this fall
It expects to open 38-42 centers in the next four years. It will hire between 1,300 and 2100 new center-based teams by 2021. By then, it plans to be a national leader in primary care. They also offer Medicare Advantage and other value-based primary care services. The health system is focusing on improving health outcomes, lower costs, and patient experience.
The company’s model for care is unique
Patients have greater access to doctors and nurses and are better able to communicate with their doctors. The health network is vast. The company’s mission is to provide quality, affordable care to underserved communities. By focusing on cost-effective care, the company has become a leader in community health. Its innovative business model has helped it grow into a regional leader in the market.
In addition to its clinics, Oak Street Health also has plans to open two more centers in Missouri and New Mexico. Its value-based care network for adults on Medicare is a competitive model for primary care. Its employees answered questions about the health care system’s culture and leadership. Its culture is also diverse, with equal opportunities for women and minorities. The company is also focused on ensuring patient satisfaction. The healthcare system is not only inclusive, it is committed to the community.
The company’s expansion plans include opening additional centers in Florida and New York City. Walmart is now the second largest private employer in the world and is expanding its reach to serve older adults in various markets. The first two centers in the state of Florida will begin serving the population of more than 25,000 Medicare-eligible older adults. These clinics are located in the same area as Oak Street Health’s headquarters. However, these two companies are different and offer unique services.
The Oak Street Health network is part of the HAP family of brands
The network offers more than 100 primary care centers nationwide and focuses on holistic health. Each of these practices is certified to accept Medicare patients. A community network is a partnership between hospitals and health systems. If a doctor can see a patient’s physician and prescribe treatment, it’s a good indication of a high quality medical practice. With the Medicare Advantage Network, a hospital can work with many providers and manage their own healthcare.
The Oak Street Health community’s members can benefit from a variety of services. Its members have access to health insurance for the first time, and they can make use of its value-based care payment structure. The health plan will also allow members to receive lower-cost medical care. Providing care for people with low incomes is important. For those with low incomes, the Center’s healthcare centers will be a good option.
