IntegratedCare Clinics

Apodi IntegratedCare Clinics (ICCs) provide the mechanism for Companies to offer a value added service that meets the DH and NHS agenda resulting in:

  • Improved patient outcomes
  • Improved patient experiences

By bringing the Patient and the most appropriate Healthcare Professional together in a Primary Care setting, beneficial outcomes for the patient can be quickly achieved. The patient sees only who they need to see, saving them numerous visits to different NHS agencies and potentially saving the NHS money in referral and appointment costs.

IntegratedCare Clinics include Group Education Sessions which is for many patients, their first experience of disease specific education and is a pioneering facet of the programme. Education is proven to increase a patients’ ability to self-care and improve adherence.
