South Florida Practice Catches HHS Attention
James Chen, MD
James Chen, MD

ChenMed, a family owned primary care practice, has developed a delivery model focused on care for seniors with complicated healthcare issues, including heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and cancer. More than 70 percent of its patients have five or more chronic conditions, according to Bryan Sivak, chief technology officer of the Department of Health and Human Services.


Sivak visited ChenMed, based in South Florida and now expanding in the Southeast, because it is an example of an innovative care model that improves patient care and makes its delivery more efficient.  ChenMed's uses of data are guiding clinical staff on decision-making from the moment the patient walks through the door, Sivak wrote in a Jan. 28 blog.   


ChenMed has ten locations throughout Dade and Broward counties.  James Chen, MD is the owner and founder. James' son Christopher Chen, MD is the CEO.
