Delivering care with care. Amdocs’ care is patient-centred. Why work with Amdocs? Reasons vary from practitioner to practitioner, but usually include: • the focus on family medicine • the opportunity to “give back” • the opportunity to spend time with patients and experience improved health outcomes in the community they serve • all administration is looked after (office/overhead/staffing) • a balanced pace and regular hours, Monday to Friday, 8:30am -4:30pm
Amdocs is a community-based physician services group providing primary care through a shared group practice model in remote and northern Canadian communities. Since joining forces with The North West Company (NWC) in 2009, Amdocs has benefitted from NWC’s substantial infrastructure on the ground, human resources, processes, technologies, and relationships in order to deliver effective health programming. Discernable clinical standards and productivity are reported in accordance with government requirements. Amdocs physicians conform to current Canadian practice guidelines and standards, have university academic affiliations, and are developing collaborative partnerships with specialty programs. In order to improve health outcomes in the communities they serve, Amdocs physicians can expect to work in an environment that includes: • a patient-centered approach • a wide scope of practice that addresses community needs • full support (administrative, personal, logistical, academic, and clinical) • practice standards, quality improvement/assurance, critical occurrence review, and conflict resolution support • professional development opportunities • effective technology and innovation • medical direction • dynamic practice opportunities with flexible contract arrangements • University affiliation and academic appointments
Compassion + Care + Competence Amdocs’ support allows each practitioner to function at the top of his or her license. Much of Amdocs’ historical success is built on collaborative efforts where physicians play the pivotal role in creating a supportive environment that allows service delivery by the most appropriate member of a multi-professional team. This ultimately leads to better adherence to practice guidelines and better patient outcomes. Through a team-healthcare approach, Amdocs physicians are able to change health outcomes – improving health one patient, one community at a time. Amdocs’ care model, which integrates managed care solutions, is proving successful in changing the outcome of disease as well as changing communities’ outlooks concerning their own health. Comprehensive healing relationships and a focus on wellness are vastly superior to brief moments of in-person patient visits. Amdocs specializes in comprehensive integrated practice, using diagnostic capability, pharmacy services, Telehealth, and a full continuum of skilled health professionals working in a collaborative practice mode— responsive to physician needs and concerns. The delivery of high quality family physician services includes chronic disease management, and practice consultant support for nurse clinician services.

Improving health outlooks… 2000 Dr. Anthon Meyer, a family physician from South Africa, arrives in Thompson, Manitoba. Confronted by the third-world health conditions he encounters in First Nations communities, he sets plans in place for positive change. 2003 Anthon Meyer Doctors Service (Amdocs) is formed, delivering in-situ physician services in Cross Lake, MB. 2004 On-call telephone assistance is provided to nurses working in the Manitoban First Nations communities of Oxford House, Shamattawa, Split Lake, South Indian Lake, Nelson House, Brochet, Lac Brochet, and Tadoule Lake. 2006 Amdocs begins servicing communities in northwest Ontario with a clinic in Pikangikum, followed by Big Trout Lake, Muskrat Dam, and Sioux Lookout. 2007 A clinic staffed by Amdocs physicians opens in Gods Lake Narrows, MB. Word of improving health outcomes spreads within First Nations leadership, fuelling additional requests for Amdocs to extend primary healthcare services to under-served communities.
