Personalized Medicine for Aging Adults
Be Well MD is an outpatient medical practice providing personalized healthcare to aging adults.
Convenience, access and customized care are the hallmarks of Be Well MD. Our clinicians are specifically trained to care for the needs and conditions of aging adults.
Be Well MD services are conveniently accessible to you, providing care through our in-home concierge service, with various level options. No matter the level of care you choose, the personalized attention you receive may help avoid unnecessary trips to the emergency room or urgent care and prevent exposure to infections in busy waiting rooms. Your desired level of care determines insurance coverage.
Out-of-pocket spending tends to rise with age and number of chronic conditions. It is also greater for seniors who live in long-term care facilities and those who have one or more hospitalizations. Efforts to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and improve the coordination of care at home can not only help to reduce Medicare spending but also help to reduce out-of-pocket spending.
The complexities of the healthcare system often make getting proper care difficult and the decisions can be overwhelming. If you already have medical services in place, Be Well MD will work directly with your medical providers to alleviate these issues, serving as your personal aging specialist to coordinate treatments and achieve the best results for your health.
Creating a Patient-Provider Relationship
Caring for seniors isn’t just something we do, it’s all we do. Our primary care services address your general medical care including managing chronic conditions, monitoring medications, tending to acute care needs, tracking physical activity and maintaining overall health. All the while, keeping a close eye on changes that occur with age.
We want our patients to know and feel they are receiving more than just healthcare. Knowing you and your goals is a vital part of the Be Well MD patient-provider relationship.
Be Well MD Health Assessment
Our services start with a comprehensive health assessment where we take time to get to know each patient on a personal level. We will review your medical history, current lifestyle, personal health and wellness goals. This conversation is our first step in truly getting to know you and for you to get to know us.
We Manage All Primary Care Needs:
- Support in managing chronic conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, arthritis and coronary heart disease
- Sudden illnesses such as the flu, pneumonia, urinary tract infections and skin infections
- Medication management
- Coordination of home health, specialty and therapy services
- Memory and cognitive impairment
- Wellness and exercise planning and support
- Central point of communication for all medical services
Two Levels of Service
In-Home Concierge Service
The Be Well MD care team sees our concierge members on the same day or the next day when physician attention is requested. For your convenience, clinical visits will be conducted in the comfort of your home, and you (or any member of your family) can contact us anytime with questions or concerns.
The service that every one of our members receives is based entirely on individual needs, ranging from wellness planning to caring for acute care needs to managing chronic conditions. It all starts with a personal care plan that we develop together.
Virtual Care Service
This level of service provides the same unique benefits as our full-service program including 24/7 access to the medical team and same day/next day appointments. Like our full-concierge service, Dr. Carlson and his team will serve as the ‘hub’ for all health care needs. The only difference between this level and the full-service level is that visits are conducted virtually. This service appeals to seniors who may not need frequent in-home care from the physician, but appreciate the peace-of-mind of having direct access to a geriatric specialist anytime the need arises.
