Our commitment to excellence and innovation

At EVMS Medical Group, our  commitment to excellence drives us to continuously improve and stay informed about the latest trends in the medical field. We hire the best medical professionals in the field and develop the most efficient and cost-effective approach to patient care. We are dedicated to bettering our practices to provide our patients with the utmost level of care, while also ensuring that we optimize value and avoid unnecessary expenses.

Our clinical practice nurses and medical assistants have trained in the following higher-level team functions:

Population health

Involves looking at different factors that impact people's health, such as their social lives, the economy, and the environment.

Tracking hospital discharges

Involves documenting the number and specifics of patients who receive medical treatment before being released from a hospital.

Medication reconciliation

Involves creating an accurate and up-to-date list of all the medications a patient is taking to resolve any discrepancies that may arise during transition of care.

Patient self-management

Involves patients managing their own health and medical conditions through education, resources, and tools for health literacy.

Smoking status

Involves recording an individual's current or past smoking habits and their relationship with tobacco use to inform treatment decisions.


Involves a trained professional who oversees the overall mental health and wellbeing of individuals, couples, families, or groups.

Training also includes proactive, preventative services such as Medicare Wellness Visits for Medicare Beneficiaries, which provide a snapshot of a patient's current health as well as a valuable baseline for future yearly visits. Medicare Wellness Visits are essential to ensure that any potentially serious health issues are identified as early as possible.
