BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MDVIP, the national leader in affordable personalized healthcare, today announced the opening of two new MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices in Michigan. Internal medicine physicians Lioudmila Kinachtchouk, M.D. of Saginaw and Kathryn Hinderer, D.O. of Clarkston, will deliver a better healthcare experience with an emphasis on prevention, not just the treatment of illness. In addition to these two communities, MDVIP continues to expand its network to 27 affiliated physicians across the Great Lakes State, including Detroit, Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids. Recently, MDVIP surpassed a significant milestone of 1,000 physicians and 325,000 members, nationwide.
"As an internal medicine physician, I have learned that one of the most valuable resources is the time I can spend with my patients to know each of them personally and assist in navigating today's complex healthcare environment," said Dr. Hinderer. "Transitioning to the MDVIP model affords me the opportunity to continue expanding upon my years of experience with preventive medicine, as well as treating chronic diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension, with a more holistic and comprehensive approach."
"For over 25 years of practice, I have had the joy and privilege of providing comprehensive primary care to patients in the Saginaw community," said Dr. Kinachtchouk. "With my partnership with MDVIP, I look forward to continuing to serve as a healthcare partner to my patients and combine cutting-edge preventive screening modalities with personalized care that is built on education, trust and mutual respect."
Personalized Preventive Care
MDVIP-affiliated physicians maintain significantly smaller practices, which allows them to spend more time with patients and provide highly individualized primary care compared to traditional practices. For an annual membership fee, each patient receives the MDVIP Wellness Program, a comprehensive yearly health assessment that includes advanced diagnostic tests and screenings to give a more complete view of the patient's overall health. Using the results, physicians provide coaching and tools to help patients make healthier lifestyle choices, prevent disease and achieve their wellness goals.
Proven Health Outcomes
Published research supports the MDVIP model. Medicare patients in MDVIP-affiliated practices were admitted to the hospital 79% less than patients in traditional practices, and commercial patients were in the hospital 72% less, notes an American Journal of Managed Care study. This significant reduction in hospitalizations yielded a $300 million savings for Medicare in one year. Readmission rates for Medicare patients suffering heart attack, congestive heart failure and pneumonia were dramatically lower than for non-MDVIP Medicare patients.
Smaller Practice, More Time
Other benefits of an MDVIP-affiliated practices include same or next-day appointments that start on time and last an average of 30 minutes. Physicians are reachable 24/7 by phone. If patients have an emergent need while traveling, their physician can help arrange care with a local hospital, pharmacy or doctor, which may include another MDVIP-affiliated physician. Demonstrating the value of the MDVIP model, patient satisfaction and annual membership renewals consistently exceed 90 percent.
