Our Program is also offered to eligible patients at no incremental financial cost to them. We are not a fee-for-service practice; we benefit economically only if we deliver high-quality patient outcomes and satisfaction. As a result, our clinical teams can spend quality-time caring for a smaller number of patients, giving all patients the space, respect, compassion and care they deserve.Our model is finding success throughout the country; we are now the nation's largest risk-based, in-home medical group.At Landmark, our interdisciplinary teams collaboratively manage our complex patient panels.
