About Us

One Medical is a primary care solution challenging the industry status quo by making quality care more affordable, accessible and enjoyable. But this isn’t your average doctor’s office. We’re on a mission to transform healthcare, which means improving the experience for everyone involved - from patients and providers to employers and health networks. Our seamless in-office and 24/7 virtual care services, on-site labs, and programs for preventive care, chronic care management, common illnesses and mental health concerns have been delighting people for the past fifteen years.

In February 2023 we marked a milestone when One Medical joined Amazon. Together, we look to deliver exceptional health care to more consumers, employers, care team members, and health networks to achieve better health outcomes. As we continue to grow and seek to impact more lives, we’re building a diverse, driven and empathetic team, while working hard to cultivate an environment where everyone can thrive.

About Us

One Medical Seniors is a network of primary care practices where we take the time to know our patients as true individuals, and proactively provide the care, support, and inspiration they need to live their best life. We created a high-impact relationship based care model that particularly benefits adults on Medicare and those who might need more attention. Our care model changes everything - the team, outcome-focused payment, customer service, and the technology that supports our care. Our practices offer smaller panel sizes, no billing or coding, and the opportunity to lead systemic change in health care delivery while working with a true team. One Medical Seniors wants to restore humanity to healthcare, for both patients and team members.

    • Use patient centered communication skills and health behavior change strategies (e.g. Motivational Interviewing; action plans/SMART goals) to support patients and reduce the need for emergency care or acute care admissions
    • Create patient-centered care plans and ensure all identified High Risk Patients have accurate and up-to-date nursing care plans, with clear next steps/follow-up outlined.

    • Help to create and adjust daily schedule for High Risk Care Team based on patient clinical needs.
  • Complex Case Management/ Transitions of Care:

    • Perform timely and comprehensive post-discharge follow-up calls with patient/caregivers to address and resolve any post-discharge barriers and potential readmission factors.
    • Coordinate necessary home and speciality care, such as home health, DME, IV infusion orders, advanced wound care, tube feeding, etc, as well as coordinate direct admissions to inpatient/SNF as needed.
    • Build strong relationships with health systems, facilities, and post acute services (home health, hospice, etc.), including facilitating coordination and communication channels.

What You Will Need:
