Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A business plan for the Diabetes Thrive Clinic
by Gonzalez, Arthur Daniel, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 43; 1597748
Abstract (Summary)

There is a major change happening in the primary care landscape in the United States. Primary health care is seeing a decrease in the number of providers entering the field, and a substantial increase in patients entering the system. In order to maintain a competitive edge in the primary care market, health care organizations must learn to creatively address these issues.

The proposed “Diabetes Thrive Clinic” for Kaiser Permanente would alleviate the stress on primary care by caring for providers’ diabetic patients when they may not necessarily need the expertise of a physician. The Diabetes Thrive Clinic would employ two mid level providers (Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant), two Registered Nurses, and four Medical Assistants. The clinic is proposed as a pilot project for the Kaiser Permanente Cudahy Medical Office and would be housed in the already established clinic’s east module.
