Assurance Primary Care Network
Dr Jacqueline Yam, Medical Director of AcuMed Medical Group, is the Clinical Lead of Assurance Primary Care Network. Together with the other doctors in AcuMed and our partners in Assurance PCN, we strive to provide holistic team-based care for all our patients.
What is a Primary Care Network?
In an effort to provide patients with more holistic primary care, the Primary Care Networks (PCNs) scheme enables patients to be cared for under a multidisciplinary team and have access to ancillary and support services. Under the scheme, General Practitioners (GPs) from private clinics can form virtual networks to share resources and provide teambased chronic disease management in the community.
Dr Jacqueline Yam, Medical Director of AcuMed Medical Group, and PCN Leader for Assurance PCN, has the following to say about the PCN initiative:
“By grouping together and forming a PCN, resources such as Diabetic Retinal Photography, Foot Screening and Nurse Counselling can be shared. The provision of Nurse Counselling services and the close tracking of patients on the Disease Registry will achieve better patient compliance and improvement in patients’ medical issues. The funding from MOH and AIC also help manage the direct costs of these services for our patients.”
