physician with patient

Massachusetts-based SALMON Health and Retirement is partnering with Texas-based primary care provider Curana Health to offer an embedded physician model intended to improve on-site care for residents at SALMON’s Medway CCRC.

Curana’s model offers residents on-site and virtual primary and post-acute care. The partnership allows SALMON to improve the experience for its residents through integrated and coordinated care with the goal of reducing unnecessary hospitalizations.

Embedded clinicians help facilities provide a consistent model of care to all residents, improve census, and create a more personalized resident care experience that results in higher-quality outcomes, said Michael Emery, executive vice president for senior living at Curana Health. Services typically include preventative care, sick visits, lab work, wound care, and blood pressure clinics. Curana also coordinates care with residents’ specialists and other care teams and offers 24/7 access to advanced practice providers who specialize in geriatric care.

“Curana is excited to partner with groups like SALMON who share the belief in creating innovative partnerships to build new clinical models for senior living that reflect what this generation of seniors wants, expects, and deserves,” Emery said. “We are delivering a more convenient and coordinated care experience, rooted in access to high quality, multi-specialty care terms that are true partners with residents and their families.”
