Spira Care Centers – It’s about the relationship

At Spira Care Centers, patient-centered Care Teams consist of board-certified physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, behavioral health consultants, and diabetes educators. Removing barriers to care is critical to Spira Care’s vision; this is realized, in part, by removing financial barriers to primary, preventive, and sick care.

Offering a personal, simplified patient experience focused on the whole person, the Spira Care model allows more time for providers to listen to patients, address health concerns, and support wellness goals. Care Guides are available to help patients understand their care plans, coordinate care, and explain health insurance benefits. Spira Care has six years of data to illustrate its success in driving down healthcare costs and reducing the overall total cost of care for employers.

“Spira Care is one of the first primary care practices in the region to offer integrated behavioral health—identifying and treating the unmet behavioral health needs that so often accompany medical conditions and contribute to unfavorable clinical and cost outcomes,” said Dr. Rebecca Gernon, DVP, Spira Care Medical Director.

Data from Spira Care shows one of the most important drivers of health is a continuous relationship with a primary care provider. Advanced primary care improves health outcomes, lowers healthcare costs for employees and employers, and increases patient satisfaction. For employers, this means enhanced productivity and a healthier workforce.
