Crossing The Road To Better Health – Dr. Dan Lord

“The Fee-for-Service medical system is far from what's best for the patient.” – Dr. Dan Lord

Today we are standing tall at RockTapes's “Rock Stock 2017” with Dr. Dan Lord, Physical Medicine Program Manager at Crossover Health, as he explains how we can reinvent health care to reduce costs, improve physical and mental well-being, and introduce a truly engaging and preventive approach to medicine.

Crossover Health Medical Group is a doctor-led team of caregivers helping to prevent and treat illness by focusing on the proven components of great health. They have built a “Continuum of Care” that takes patients through an integrated wellness routine and provides the tools, education, and strategies to make their health goals a reality.

They are using innovative technologies to connect with patients outside the 4 walls of the clinic and also provide behavioral coaching to empower people to take control of their own health destiny. With a heavy focus on integrative wellness and patient results, Crossover Health is creating the change and proactive approach needed in today's broken medical system.
