This article about ChenMed on Forbes really caught my eye, because for a while now I’ve been wondering why no one has created a practice focusing on Medicare patients.

ChenMed has identified a few key success factors, including location (they started in Virginia, which they identified as an area poorly served for Medicare patients), an emphasis on preventive care, and a custom, home-grown technology system.
They’re raising capital and looking to expand into other markets. We’ll be watching.
