Strong physician-advanced practice provider relationships are integral to the success of Access TeleCare’s telemedicine programs. These relationships are built on a shared mission for patient care, open communication, and mutual respect and trust.
These three tenets foster a healthy work environment centered on delivering the best possible care for patients.
“Great physician-APP relationships are essential to the success of our programs,” said Access TeleCare’s national director of advanced practice providers, Lauren Ingram, MSN, MS, APRN, FNP-C. “It allows us to strike the balance of autonomy and support for our APPs and deliver excellent care to patients consistently.”
Access TeleCare’s physicians and APPs operate on one shared mission, aligning their clinical goals to make effective care decisions for patients and enhance the local care environment.
From admission to discharge, Access TeleCare APPs are involved in all aspects of patient care, collaborating with physicians to ensure every patient gets the care they need.
Access TeleCare’s care models are designed with open communication between physicians and APPs in mind.
Maintaining open lines of communication means physicians and APPs identify issues of concern early, resolve challenges or questions professionally, and advance professional development.
Mutual respect among physicians and APPs creates a healthy framework for team members to work in and ensures physicians and APPs work well together in the service of excellent patient care.
Physicians and APPs working well together allows Access TeleCare to scale programs effectively and deliver specialty care to more patients who need it.
“Our APPs are an integral part of our telemedicine programs,” said Access TeleCare president/CEO Chris Gallagher, M.D. “We’re able to scale our programs and meet patients’ needs because of our dedicated APPs and their commitment to the mission of Access TeleCare.”
