A new kind of health care model known as “accountable care” places a high priority on convenience so it’s easier for patients to get the care they need when they need it. “We ask, what’s convenient for the patient? What do they need?” says Dr. Robert Groves, Chief Medical Officer at Banner Health, University Medical Division. Groves is one of several doctors featured in a video about accountable care and how making health care more convenient for people is mixing up old ideas about what it means to “see the doctor.”
