Our Patient-focused Model
Our model emphasizes a patient-focused clinical approach. In the health care environment, our relationships with different partners, including hospitals, third-party payors, referring physicians, affiliated physicians and, most importantly, patients, are important considerations in the patient-focused clinical approach. Pediatrix, through a collaborative effort of health care and business professionals, helps physicians achieve their clinical and business goals.
Physicians, who are dedicated to delivering high-quality clinical care, are supported by our clinical and business professionals who continuously demonstrate their effectiveness in managing the business aspects of medical practices.
Our Clinical Care Model
We are committed to delivering evidence-based medicine. To support this goal, Pediatrix developed the Center for Research, Education and Quality (CREQ) in 1998 to improve the quality of care provided by our health care professionals and expand their knowledge base. Through the CREQ, our affiliated clinicians participate in clinical research, continuing medical education and continuous quality improvement initiatives, all supported by powerful health information technology.
