A physician, advanced practice provider, clinical and administrative staff will initially staff the practice, according to the release. Patients will also have on-site access to a pharmacist, care manager, social worker, behavioral health professional and financial navigator to help with Medicare and Medicaid options.

“This new model of care is part of our value-based care initiative and aims to improve patient outcomes and satisfaction, as well as lower health care costs in an innovative way,” Dr. Greg Kiray, IU Health senior vice president for population health, said in the release.

IU Health intends to open additional Connected Care practices across Indiana. Another practice is located near IU Health Saxony Hospital in Fishers.
