About Landmark Health
There is a care gap in America for those who need extra time with medical providers and easier access to care. Landmark cares for this group-people perhaps much like your parents, neighbors, and elders in your community-those with multiple chronic conditions.
Landmark Health is transforming how healthcare is delivered to patients with complex medical situations. As a national medical group, we provide home-based medical services to simplify care for those who need it most.
Want to be a Rock Star in the lives of patients with complex, chronic conditions?
Imagine if you will---.
You visit your small panel of patients in the comfort of their own homes. You spend all the time needed to ensure your patients' health issues are addressed. You create a friendly and trusting relationship with each patient and his or her family. You have the support of a collaborative, multidisciplinary clinical team who works in the field with you. And you do it all - at no added cost - to the patient .
What would you be in this role? A clinical Rock Star . That's what you'd be.
Sound too good to be true? It's not - and here's why.
Landmark is not a fee-for-service practice. We profit only when we create successful patient outcomes and high levels of satisfaction for our patients. As a result, our clinical teams can spend quality time caring for a smaller number of patients. Our business model allows us to give our patients all the time and care that they need.
And we've been very successful at this. Landmark is now the nation's largest risk-based, in-home medical group, with operations in markets across the US.
