Core Principles

For the past ten years, Commonwealth Care Alliance has been realizing a vision of primary medical care that’s far broader than the traditional 20-minute visit to a doctor in an office. The way we care for people with complex medical needs is to deliver integrated, interdisciplinary care on an ongoing basis, wherever needed, in the communities we serve.

Our interdisciplinary clinical teams bring care to members at their home, nursing home, group home, doctor’s office, or hospital, as well as other locations. Services encompass primary medical care and a comprehensive array of behavioral health services, social support services, and long-term services and support.

Practitioners are assigned to each clinical team based on the specific needs of each member. Furthermore, each team cares for a small number of individuals on a regular basis, so they can really get to know their patients. To ensure early intervention as needs arise, care is available 24/7.

In addition, we always keep in mind that our members know best what they need. Each care plan is highly individualized, with care and funding decisions made collaboratively by the clinical team and the member and the member’s family or guardian.
