About ChenMed

At ChenMed, we’re pioneering a different way to practice medicine. Each of our physician-led practices have one profound mission: to provide the best care possible for America’s vulnerable population--seniors.

Our value-based model makes patients our highest priority. This is healthcare the way it was meant to be practiced.

Our physician-led care teams coordinate the entire patient journey for vulnerable seniors on Medicare. With our patient-centered focus on VIP care and prevention, you can keep your patients healthier and happier.

Our primary care physicians have small patient panels and patients have 24/7 access to their doctor. This fosters rewarding doctor-patient relationships and ensures healthier, more compliant patients

Compare ChenMed’s high-touch, physician-led primary care model with traditional volume-based, incentive-driven healthcare. We practice medicine the way it is meant to be practiced. Our model creates better outcomes through patient affordability, improved health – ChenMed patients have 33% fewer hospitalizations and ER visits – and a renewed sense of passion and purpose in our doctors.
