Boulder Community Hospital's owned-and-operated primary care clinics are pleased to offer Live Better, a more personal and coordinated approach to medical care.

- Enhanced communication with your Care Team by phone and online
Who is on my Care Team?
Your Care Team starts with you. It includes:
A care coordinator is available to assist you if you have been admitted to the hospital and require support after discharge. A care coordinator may also assist you in managing your ongoing health needs. Working together, your Care Team will:
Partner with you to create, manage and fulfill your personal health care goals
Coordinate your care both in the clinic and throughout our network of specialists and services
Educate you on your health conditions and your options for care
How do I get the most from Live Better?
In order to get the most benefit from our Live Better approach, it is important to be an active member of your Care Team. Here are some ways you can do this:
Bring a list of concerns/questions to each appointment
Speak openly with your Care Team and ask them to explain anything you do not understand
Provide a complete list of medications, vitamins and herbal remedies you use
Inform your Care Team when you go to an Emergency Department, hospital, urgent care or skilled nursing facility
When you see a specialist, urgent or emergency care facility or other provider, present your Live Better Primary Care Provider (PCP) card. Ask them to forward a copy of the clinic notes and test results to your primary care provider.
Live Better Primary Care Provider (PCP) Card
Your Live Better Primary Care Provider (PCP) card is an important information card that we would like you to keep with your insurance card. Please present this card wherever you obtain medical services.
The goal of the PCP card is to ensure that your Care Team has up-to-date information on your medical condition, such as:
Consultations from specialists
Summaries from your clinic visits
Any information we should knw about your medical history
After Hours Nurse Call Line
If you would like to speak with one of our nurses after hours, call your clinic's main number (located on your Live Better PCP card) and select the "On call" option. Our nurses can answer questions, provide self-care tips and help you decide whether to seek immediate medical care. This free service is provided to all of our established patients.
