Steven L. Phillips, MD
Dr. Phillips has worked in the field of primary and long-term care medicine for frail and vulnerable elderly for the past 25 years as a clinician, researcher and administrator. He remains involved at a local, state and national level with an interest in enhancement of transitional care models, chronic care management, policy development, quality improvement and population-based approaches.
He is the founder and CEO/President of Geriatric Specialty Care (GSC) in Northern Nevada. GSC is an “Office Without Walls” serving the frail and home-bound elderly residing in private residences, group care homes, assisted living facilities and nursing facilities. In addition, Dr. Phillips serves as medical director for the HealthInsight Nevada (QIN/QIO) Enhanced Care Coordination Program (ECCP) awarded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI). The Admissions, Transitions, Optimization Program (ATOP) is charged with the implementation of INTERACT III throughout 25 nursing facilities across the state of Nevada. ATOP is utilizing a rescue response team (RRT) approach with a risk stratification dashboard and patient registry.
Dr. Phillips has recently joined the FEMR Group to bring medical and technological applications to a somewhat dysfunctional health care information exchange (HIE) environment. Working with medical and technological experts supports a more disciplined approach for participation in alternative payment models (APM) of care. He is involved in the development of telehealth and telemedicine outreach to the underserved areas of rural and frontier Nevada.
