Group visits are medical appointments in which multiple patients are seen simultaneously by Dr. Ohri and a functional medicine certified health coach in a supportive group setting. The focus is upon the actual delivery of health education. However, group visits also bring a great deal of help and support of the health coach into each patient’s healthcare experience.
Research has shown that group visits improve patient satisfaction, quality of care, quality of life, decrease emergency room and specialist visits. Group visits have proven to be an effective way to improve patient’s dietary compliance and intermediate markers for diabetes and coronary artery disease.
Additional Benefits of Group Visits include:
- Patient care experience, patient satisfaction
- Increased access to care
- Cost effectiveness of care
- Improved quality and safety
- Social support and encouragement
Group visits allow patients to teach one another self-care and disease management tips and tricks. This social connection helps create an additional support network for patients to begin and sustain behavior change.
