Co-Management Patient Care Model
BIDMC is an academic tertiary care referral center which offers
state-of-the-art surgeries, procedures, and consultation. In order to
provide the best care for our patients, we have partnered with our
specialists to provide a co-management patient care model.
When complex patients are referred for specialty care, we can:

Ensure that the patient is safely transitioned to home

We have found that this model improves patient care and satisfaction, and
allows the specialists to focus on their area of expertise.
