Understanding Coordinated Care

Physician-led teams, centered on you

Connecting with a doctor matters to you. Traditionally, it could be easy to lose that connection in the course of an illness or treatment. At UnityPoint Health, we are changing that by emphasizing the role of the physician, not just as a healer of individuals but also as a professional team leader. Our vision includes physician leaders who are able to elevate the quality of care for every patient, even for procedures or treatments that are being addressed by other physicians or health care professionals.

We describe our professional culture as "physician-led." This means that, ideally, your physician is not just contributing to your care, but is leading a team that surrounds you with care and includes you in decision-making. That way at UnityPoint Health can be sure you get the care you need, whether it's accessing a specialist at the hospital, a home care professional, or health services in your community.

When you see a physician with UnityPoint Health, you receive the benefit of an entire team.
