Dr. Russell Kohl has joined Leawood, Kan.-based TransforMED this week as its new medical director for innovation.
Kohl, whose age was not immediately available, will lead the Centers of Excellence for the not-for-profit subsidiary of the American Academy of Family Physicians. The center exists to study and analyze the components of a successful medical-home practice. TransforMED consultants then guide primary-care physicians in the redesign of their practices to implement a patient-centered medical-home model.
“I am excited to continue our exploration and dissemination of the ideas and models that will revolutionize healthcare in the United States to give better, more cost-effective care to our patients and higher personal and professional satisfaction to the physicians and staff who provide that care,” Kohl said in a release.
