SAMWUMED has introduced a Family Practitioner Network.
The advantage of having a single family health practitioner instead of visiting many is that members and their dependents’ health care records are held and coordinated at a single place and shared with specialists and other providers when necessary.
The disadvantages of visiting more than one practitioner include:
- The risk of members receiving different or conflicting diagnoses or medical advice and treatments for the same ailments
- Spending more especially where tests and medicines are repeated and or duplicated by the different practitioners.
