When it comes to primary health care, patients have two choices – entrust their care to a general practitioner (GP) or to a multidisciplinary practice.
A GP is a physician who doesn’t specialize in any particular area of medicine, but provides routine health care (physical examinations, immunizations, etc.) and diagnoses and treats different conditions.
A multidisciplinary medical practice, on the other hand, is a whole team of medical professionals who focus on a variety of specialties. These doctors work together as a team to provide the best possible care for their patients, combining their complementary skills, knowledge, and expertise.
Why a Multidisciplinary Practice Is Better
This sort of medical organization provides numerous benefits for both the practice and its patients, including the following:
INCREASED MEDICAL OPTIONS
At a multidisciplinary practice, you don’t need a referral to see an gastroenterologist, chiropractor, physical therapists, cardiologists, or any other type of specialist – they’re right there on the premises to meet most, if not all, of your medical needs.
GREAT ACCESSIBILITY AND SPEED OF SERVICE
Coordinating appointments with various doctors is not always an easy task. At a multidisciplinary practice, however, all of the doctors work together for optimal care of the patient. This significantly speeds up the process from your initial visit all the way to treatment.
A SEAMLESS FLOW OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION
Dealing with multiple doctors can be frustrating when the transfer of information does not go smoothly. It can result in incorrect patient information being conveyed from one doctor to another, or the omission of vital details. A multidisciplinary medical practice eliminates these gaps and makes the patient experience less stressful.
In a multidisciplinary practice, physicians share expenses that they would otherwise have difficulty affording – such as various types of testing technology. They also share management services, which helps to increase profitability and overall revenue – while also increasing patient satisfaction and improved outcomes.
