At Sentara, we believe that aging and good health should go hand in hand. And part of good health comes from having a primary care team to partner with you today so you can be more healthy and active tomorrow. Together we can set goals and give you the tools you need to stay on top of - and be more active in - your care.
A New Model of Care
Sentara Medical Group is developing and introducing primary care sites with a unique team approach for seniors and those patients in needed of a higher level of care and coordination.
Our primary care team at Sentara Martha Jefferson Internal Medicine is the first Sentara practice in our area to provide transitional care management, helping patients transition from the hospital setting back to home. Our integrated care manager calls our patients to review medicine they have been prescribed, assess any immediate needs the patient may have, and schedule their follow-up appointment with their primary care physician. This coordination allows us to provide support and education as well as identify any potential concerns that may cause readmission to the hospital.
So, whether you are living with chronic illness or just want to take a more active role in your health as you age, you will have peace of mind knowing that we will be with you every step of the way and are ready to provide the right care for you - when and as you need it.
