A Bet­ter Health­care Experience

Cen­ter­ing group care deliv­ers bet­ter health out­comes and a bet­ter care expe­ri­ence for patients and their providers 

Cen­ter­ing empow­ers patients, strength­ens patient-provider rela­tion­ships, and builds com­mu­ni­ties through these three main components

Both provider and patient are involved in the health assess­ment. Patients receive one-on-one time with their provider and learn to take some of their own assess­ments. This engages them in their own self-care or care of their child. 

Engag­ing activ­i­ties and facil­i­tat­ed dis­cus­sions help patients to be more informed, con­fi­dent and empow­ered to make health­i­er choic­es for them­selves, their chil­dren and their families. 

One person’s ques­tion is anoth­er one’s ques­tion. Patients quick­ly find com­fort in know­ing they are not alone. Par­tic­i­pa­tion in group care lessens the feel­ings of iso­la­tion and stress while build­ing friend­ships, com­mu­ni­ty and sup­port systems.
