Healthcare and Treatment for the Whole Person—Physical, Psychological and Social Well-Being

Monterey Park, CA, July 5, 2016—SynerMed, a market-leading healthcare organization specializing in government-sponsored healthcare programs, received Molina Healthcare’s “2016 Innovative Award.” The award was presented to SynerMed Executive Vice President Peter Winston at the Molina Event Center in Long Beach, California, in recognition of SynerMed’s Downtown Coordinated Care Center (DC3). The clinic provides access to quality healthcare for high-risk, high-cost patients.

“We commend SynerMed on the development of the Downtown Coordinated Care Center in Los Angeles County,” said Milaine Isaac, Associate Vice President of Molina Healthcare of California. “The fact that services are provided in an effort to treat the ‘whole’ person, even when services are not covered by Medi-Cal or Medicare, is exemplary. SynerMed serves as a true shining example of the principles for which we stand to improve the health and well-being of the community at large.”

In 2016, SynerMed’s membership exceeded 1,000,000 members throughout California.  SynerMed’s new growth is attributed to the increase of patients from the Affordable Care Act, and low-income seniors and persons with disabilities who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medi-Cal.

Many low-income patients with chronically complex conditions have greater healthcare needs that often go undiagnosed due to lack of service and a fragmented healthcare system.

“SynerMed is extremely proud that the DC3 has been able to help so many people who have fallen through the cracks of our healthcare system,” said Peter Winston, Executive Vice President of SynerMed. “Using our whole-person approach to healthcare, we’ve been able to lower the costs of the top 1% of high-risk patients from $30,000 per member per month to about $5,000 per member per month. More importantly, we’ve been able to give these patients the resources they need for managing their conditions better, so they can stay out of the ER and lead healthier lives.”

Over the next five years, SynerMed plans to develop more complex care models in every market and expand its services to include behavioral health, substance abuse and long-term care. For more information about the DC3, visit www.dc3medical.com.
