My Prior Experience:
Level of Care: At Kaiser Northern CA (Santa Rosa) primary care MD's worked closely with specialists. We had direct access to all the sub-specialties. We were expected to work up patients completely prior to any referrals. Urgent consults were available with all the specialists at all times - for example, we were able to schedule same-day exercise treadmill testing for appropriate high-risk patients after a brief phone call with the cardiologist on call.
Telemedicine - Part of our duty as a staff MD at Kaiser was regular phone and video appointments with our patients. In addition we also had after hour and weekend duty in clinic or at home via telemedicine. We had scheduled telephone appointments every 10 minutes. We were able to directly contact the charge nurse in the clinic or ED if we needed the patient of a phone visit to be evaluated at the hospital urgently.
Personal Care: I was expected to address all of the health needs of all of my 1,500 to 2,000 patients during the 15 years I worked at the Santa Rosa Kaiser. I enjoyed the close relationships that developed over the years with my patients and staff. In addition, when we saw a patient who was assigned to another MD we were expected to treat them as our own patient - we would need to update their chart and order all appropriate preventative health care needs for them.
Lifelong Care: The expectation at Kaiser is that we will take care of a patient for the rest of their lives so preventative health care was an issue at every visit.
Hospital Privileges: hospital privileges were not necessary for my outpatient practice. After about 12 years of not using them, I stopped applying
