Mass. physicians group sets up ‘innovation center’


Atrius Health, Massachusetts’s largest independent doctors group, is putting $10 million into an “innovation center” to study ways to change how healthcare is delivered, The Boston Globe reported.

Atrius includes a home-care agency and a total of about 750 physicians at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates, Dedham Medical Associates and Granite Medical Group, serving a total of 675,000 patients in eastern Massachusetts, The Globe reported.

“Atrius executives said they must rethink traditional doctor-patient relationships and office visits as the healthcare industry moves toward payment models that demand greater efficiency and better performance.”

“Atrius’s innovation team will study ways to change care, for example by allowing patients to video chat with doctors and deploying health coaches to help patients manage their diseases.”
