The authors are Megan Mahoney, MD, Stanford Medicine’s chief of general primary care, and Steven Asch, MD, vice-chief of primary care and population health.

Mahoney, the lead investigator, said the Humanwide design shifts the focus of primary care to detecting disease earlier, strengthening the relationship between the patient and care team and deploying the latest health technology.

Humanwide was built on the foundation of Primary Care 2. 0, the health care practice redesign effort at Stanford Medicine, where patients communicate regularly, in-person and virtually with members of a care team consisting of a primary care physician, nutritionist, behavioral health specialist and clinical pharmacist, depending on their health needs.
