Seniors are among the most vulnerable groups who fall susceptible to the flu, which is why the importance of vaccinations cannot be taken lightly. Last year, Southern Nevada Health District reported that nearly two out of every three confirmed cases of the flu were contracted by people over the age of 50. While getting a vaccination does not guarantee that a person will not contract the influenza virus, it does diminish the chances of getting it; and if a person who has been vaccinated does get the flu, the impact should not be as severe. In this article, HealthCare Partners Nevada provider, Dr. Judith Ford, advises that all adults should receive the influenza vaccination as soon as it is made available to increase their chances of staying healthy this flu season in addition to making sanitary habits a part of their daily routine.

HealthCare Partners Aims to Redefine Senior Care with New Clinics 8/20/2018
myGeneration clinics provide care focused on seniors and their unique health and well-being needs
LAS VEGAS – (August 20, 2018) – HealthCare Partners is bringing innovative, senior-focused primary care to Southern Nevada with the introduction of 23 unique clinics across Las Vegas, Pahrump and Mesquite.
The clinics, named myGeneration clinics, are staffed by physicians and care teams who have been specifically trained to understand and care for the unique health needs of people 65 and older on Medicare. Twenty of the 23 clinics are in operation now, with three additional myGeneration clinics expected to be introduced in October in time for the Medicare Annual Election Period, which runs from October 15 to December 7.
The number of seniors in Nevada is expected to grow over the next several years to account for nearly one-third of the state’s population by 2030 according to state demographer Jeff Hardcastle. HealthCare Partners currently serves more than 90,000 seniors in Southern Nevada.
“We have a long history of serving seniors in our community,” said Mark Price, market president at HealthCare Partners. “That history and depth of understanding seniors’ unique needs has allowed us to create the kind of experience we know seniors want from their healthcare provider – one where they are listened to and get the time they need with their doctor; where their care is coordinated among primary care and specialty care, and where there are resources available to help them achieve their health goals. The myGeneration clinics are a simpler, improved model for seniors, providers and our care teams.”
Among the variety of services offered at the myGeneration clinics, the primary services are annual wellness checks, identification and treatment of chronic conditions, diagnostic testing, laboratory services and immunizations. Additionally, patients have access to a health navigator, a member of the health care team, trained to help support and educate them as they navigate the complex health care system. Health navigators may remind patients of screenings and exams, thoroughly explain medical information, and serve as an advocate for patients when communicating with specialists, hospitals and Medicare plan representatives.
“Our local community is in need of compassionate and personalized medical care that meets the needs and priorities of health care for seniors,” said Ama Brobbey, MD, chief medical officer at HealthCare Partners. “As our state’s population ages, we continue to look for ways we can bring innovative services that address the health concerns and needs of this specific population.”
While the myGeneration clinics are part of the company’s ongoing commitment to helping seniors live healthier lives, the new clinic model also aids in physician retention, according to Brobbey.
“With this model, our care team has the time they need to answer all of the patient’s questions and help them make a comprehensive plan for their care,” said Brobbey. “We’ve recognized that our providers and care teams are happier because they can focus on knowing the patients and working closely with specific senior health insurance plans.”
