Astiva Health has a network of providers that closely matches patients’ demographic background, interest, language and culture. This does not come by luck. Astiva has always been working on improving its provider network and physician-patient assignment, ensuring health plans align with client needs and directives.

It should come as no surprise that one of the factors that has the most significant impact on health care is the physician-patient relationship. That fundamental ideal is one of the main drivers behind Astiva Health Inc.’s commitment to pioneering a healthcare model focused on creating a trusting relationship between physicians and clients, ensuring health plans align perfectly with client needs and directives.

“Physician-patient relationships can have profound positive and negative implications on clinical care,” states a report from Duke University’s Center for Personalize Care ( Titled “Factors that Influence the Physician-Patient Relationship,” the article notes that while there are several factors that influence physician-patient relationships, the dynamic shared and sense of trust between physicians and patients are two critical components to the overall relationship.

“Ultimately, the overarching goal of the physician-patient relationship is to improve patient health outcomes and their medical care,” the article reports. “Stronger physician-patient relationships are correlated with improved patient outcomes. As the relationship between physicians and patients becomes more important, it is essential to understand the factors that influence this relationship.”

According to the article, the dynamic between a physician and patient can be impacted by the ability to speak articulately, including the knowledge of a foreign language, and racial and cultural differences. “Effective physician-patient communication is an integral part of clinical practice and serves as the keystone of physician-patient relationships. Studies have shown the approach taken by physicians to communicate information is equally important as the actual information that is being communicated. . . . Effective communication has been shown to influence a wide array of outcomes including: emotional health, symptoms resolution, function, pain control, and physiologic measures such as blood pressure levels.”

In addition to effective communication, the report notes that the best medical decisions come when the physician and patient collaborate together. “Decision making is a process in which patients should be involved from the very beginning, and the result is a decision which reflects the physician’s medical knowledge as well as the patient’s values and beliefs,” the Duke article observes. “Collaborative communication and decision making have been correlated with greater patient satisfaction and loyalty.”

The article notes that acknowledging the importance of the physician-patient relationship is not new, but understanding the factors that influence this relationship is just beginning. “Effective physician-patient communication has been shown to positively influence health outcomes by increasing patient satisfaction, leading to greater patient understanding of health problems and treatments available, contributing to better adherence to treatment plans, and providing support and reassurance to patients,” the article concludes. “Collaborative decision making enables physicians and patients to work as partners in order to achieve a mutual health goal.”

It is this partnership that Astiva is implementing in its groundbreaking approach to creating a dynamic and innovative Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (“MAPD”) health plan designed to reshaping the landscape of personalized and comprehensive healthcare. Astiva Health provides access to experienced and dedicated providers who work together with its members to pave a pathway toward better health.

Astiva Health specializes in innovative health plans tailored to meet the unique requirements of its members. Recognizing the need for trust and clear communication, Astiva Health has prioritized a culturally responsive approach to healthcare, offering multilingual solutions for customer service, marketing materials and educational resources. By addressing the specific and unique healthcare needs of its diverse members, Astiva Health aims to create lasting relationships and contribute to the overall well-being of the communities it serves.
