The discussion cites the June 2013 article, “Team-Based Care: A Critical Element of Primary Care Practice Transformation” published by G. Goldberg, T. Beeson, A Kuzel, L. Love, and M. Carver, which provides an understanding of patient-centered care and finds that team-based care models show success in transforming primary care practices.
Since his graduation from the University of the Witwatersrand, in Johannesburg, South Africa, Dr. Hanekom has studied family and internal medicine at the Medical University of Southern Africa as well at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences. He is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and previously a Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences. As a previous Chief Medical Officer at a nationally branded health plan and Director of Chronic Disease Management at Sanford Health System North, Dr. Hanekom has gained expertise in population health management and strategies which improve healthcare outcomes.
Dr. Hanekom guides development of population health analysis products for Symphony Performance Health (SPH). Under his direction, SPH products, including the ACOFP’s Quality Markers program, identify care opportunities that allow clinicians to prioritize patients based on chronic care needs and provide care based on evidence-based professional guidelines to optimize quality of life for patients.
