Our physician founders built the company on the belief that talented, highly-trained physician assistants (PAs) and nurse practitioners (NPs) operating at the top of their credentials could partner with physicians to deliver outstanding care. For nearly a decade, Adfinitas Health has recruited, trained, and mentored APPs who provide consistently excellent clinical care and patient experiences. Our APPs are seamlessly integrated with physicians at our partner site, in a collaborative care model that has been shown to provide comparable quality and patient satisfaction at a lower cost.
In 2011, we formally launched our Advanced Practice Provider (APP) training program, building on years of previous experience and industry best practices. Our training program provides formal classroom instruction with clinical on-the-job training, coupled with increasing clinical responsibilities over time. This prepares our APPs to take on a wider scope of clinical responsibilities than they would with most companies, but always under the supervision of a physician.
We continue to refine and improve our program, ensuring its rigor and adaptability to specific care settings. Optimizing the use of APPs allows us to deliver optimal care to patients across the care continuum on behalf of our clients, while keeping costs in line.
