Three Loudoun Medical Group Physicians Change Practices

Leesburg, Va. (October 20, 2017)Loudoun Medical Group (LMG) is proud to announce that one of its founding shareholder physicians, Dr. Valerie Williamson, has established a new Family Medicine Practice with LMG, complementing the top-notch services offered by LMG’s expansive group of quality health care providers in Northern Virginia. Dr. Williamson, who has served the Loudoun community since 1994 and previously practiced with Potomac Family Practice, opened her practice on November 1, 2017.

Dr. Williamson received a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Howard University and a bachelor’s degree in Nutrition from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She went on to earn her medical degree from East Carolina School of Medicine before completing her Family Practice internship and residency at Duke University at Fayetteville Area Health Education Center. She is Board-Certified in Family Medicine and is committed to providing quality care through patient education and patient participation, in addition to alongside evidence-based practices.

46440 Benedict Drive Suite 107, Sterling, VA 20164

211 Gibson Street, NW Suite 215, Leesburg, VA 20176

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Williamson in either office, contact (571) 707-2079.

 

Also changing practice locations is Dr. Virginia Chiantella, who is a Breast Surgeon who practices both in Loudoun and Fairfax Counties.

Why the change you may ask?

Dr. Chiantella is acutely aware of the complexities associated with a new breast cancer diagnosis, and has observed over the years how those ladies so affected are increasingly bounced across multiple locations while their care plan is being developed, adding more stress to an already stressful time.

She and her friends and colleagues at Oncology/Hematology of Loudoun and Reston (Drs. Rangappa Rajendra, Manoel Moraes, Jeffrey White, Mei Firestone and Syed Ali) are joining forces in combined offices to provide a comprehensive “care home” for those with a breast cancer diagnosis, enabling consolidating office visits, facilitating instant communications between members of the care team, using a single shared medical record, and expanding in-office services that would otherwise require a trip elsewhere, all in a commitment to shortening the time to treatment, and provision of truly patient-centered care.

Dr. Chiantella will also continue to provide care and consultations for the entire spectrum of benign breast concerns, breast cancer risk assessments, in-office ultrasound evaluations and biopsies, and top of the line surgical care, as she has for over 28 years.

Please visit Oncology/Hematology of Loudoun and Reston online at www.loudounoncology.com.

 

As of October 2, 2017, Dr. John Andrew will be practicing at a new location. His practice will still be located at 224-D Cornwall Street, NW, Leesburg, VA – however the suite number is #301.The phone number will remain the same –(703) 777-1146.

Loudoun Medical Group and UnitedHealthcare Collaborate to Improve Patient Care in Northern Virginia

More than 11,000 UnitedHealthcare employer-sponsored health plan participants in Virginia can benefit from improved care coordination and enhanced health services

Leesburg, Va. (March 29, 2016) – Loudoun Medical Group and UnitedHealthcare are collaborating to improve care coordination and enhance health services through a new accountable care relationship that will benefit approximately 11,000 Virginia residents enrolled in UnitedHealthcare’s employer-sponsored health plans.

Loudoun Medical Group is one of the largest and most diverse physician-owned, multispecialty group practices in Virginia. It employs more than 250 care providers who render health care services for over 200,000 patients throughout 35 medical and surgical specialties in 112 locations across the state.

“We have long partnered with UnitedHealthcare to apply our expertise in health care innovation and patient-centered programs to improve the health of their plan participants and advance toward overall population health management,” said Mary Beth Tamasy, CEO, Loudoun Medical Group. “Together, we can achieve better health outcomes and improve patient satisfaction, while reducing the overall cost of care.”

Loudoun Medical Group and UnitedHealthcare’s collaboration will help shift Virginia to a patient-centered health care system that promotes higher quality, lower costs and better health. Participating physicians are paid based on patients’ actual health outcomes and for encouraging services that are proven to deliver consistent, high-quality care. The enhanced care coordination makes it easier for Loudoun Medical Group physicians to form a complete picture of a patient’s overall health.

UnitedHealthcare will complement Loudoun Medical Group’s own data by giving them the support needed to manage overall population health, including technology and information that will help the group’s 250 care providers take specific actions that improve quality and lower costs. Actionable data can include patient profiles, identifying specific gaps in care, and receiving timely patient information about emergency room and inpatient admissions. Patient navigators may also be used to support community-based care coordination, such as helping with transition plans after a patient is discharged from the hospital and scheduling follow-up appointments.

“UnitedHealthcare and Loudoun Medical Group are working together to help people receive more personalized and better connected care, which will significantly enhance people’s ability to live healthier lives,” said Christopher Mullins, CEO, UnitedHealthcare of the Mid-Atlantic.

The accountable care program will add value-based incentives to Loudoun Medical Group’s patient services reimbursement, in which physicians are eligible to receive payment incentives based on patient satisfaction, achieving certain evidence-based measures – such as hospital readmission rates, effectively managing chronic conditions, and preventive screenings – as well as total cost savings.

UnitedHealthcare’s accountable care programs touch as many as 14 million people, delivered in part through more than 750 total accountable care arrangements nationwide as the organization engages in deeper, more collaborative relationships with physicians and hospitals.

Care providers nationwide are showing strong interest in a shift to value-based care. UnitedHealthcare’s total payments to physicians and hospitals that are tied to value-based arrangements have tripled in the last three years to $45 billion. By the end of 2018, UnitedHealthcare expects that figure to reach $65 billion.

UnitedHealthcare serves more than 740,000 Virginia residents with a network of 106 hospitals and more than 15,000 physicians and other care providers statewide.

Loudoun Community Midwives open in BERRYVILLE!

Berryville, Va., May 6, 2014 – After 11 years in the Lansdowne location of its practice, Loudoun Community Midwives is pleased to be expanding westward into Berryville. Located at 3 ½ E. Main Street in Berryville, a bright blue sign reading “MIDWIVES at Berryville” will mark the LCMS’s new location.  The practice opened in April, 2014, offering comprehensive prenatal care, well-woman gynecology services, and births attended at Inova Loudoun Hospital. Loudoun Community Midwives, a practice of Loudoun Medical Group, is comprised of a team of certified nurse-midwives with the whole person approach to prenatal care, labor and birth.  As interest in midwifery has expanded, the practice wants to meet the needs of moms in the Loudoun area as well as surrounding locales. The Berryville practice will serve moms in western Loudoun, Clarke and surrounding counties.  The entire team of midwives who deliver babies will rotate through the newly-remodeled Berryville location so that pregnant moms can meet the entire team, without driving to Lansdowne until later in pregnancy, for the labor and birth.  The midwives are all nurses with advanced degrees as Certified Nurse-midwives as well as licensed as nurse-practitioners by the Commonwealth.  Loudoun Community Midwives offer lab services on premises, as well as annual exams and female health care for low-risk women of all ages.  www.loudouncommunitymidwives.com

About Loudoun Community Midwives

The Midwife philosophy focuses on pregnancy, birth, and women’s cycles as normal and healthy processes. We discuss many aspects of a woman’s life: work, family, diet, exercise, habits, spirituality, and emotions. Midwives do not perform surgery or handle complicated cases, but instead take time to focus on promoting health. In labor, the midwife is involved for the entire process to support the woman and family, and to ensure that all is progressing normally. We are trained to handle complications if they arise, and to assist on Caesarean sections if necessary. Please contact us at (703) 726–1300 or visit, http://loudouncommunitymidwives.com.
