The Affordable Care Act encourages programs for physicians and healthcare organizations to work together to promote good health and wellness for the people and communities they serve. Two new approaches to delivering patient care are the patient centered medical home and the Accountable Care Organization. To help us understand what these mean to you and your family, we welcome Dr. Belal Abdallah, an internal medicine physician with offices in Dearborn; he is also the President of Oakwood’s Accountable Care Organization. Also, Dr. Richard Grucz is a family medicine physician with offices in Canton. His practice has been designated a patient-centered medical home practice by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.
