Community Care Physicians is focused on the physician-led model of medicine.
CCP is a physician system. Decisions are made by physicians. As such, we are guided by those who practice in our offices every day. The daily practice of medicine is focused on creating an optimal experience for the patient and practitioner.
CCP embraces the independent, local practice of medicine and provides the framework and support that allows doctors to focus on what they do best – practice medicine. Compensations are competitive and decentralized based on performance. We have providers who have practiced at CCP throughout most of their careers. Attrition is usually due to retirement. Our organization has been highly successful over the past 35+ years. We encourage practitioners to participate in decisions, so we can remain focused on how our goals and objectives impact our team and our patients.
Centralized Support Services
Our organization has a clinical arm, Community Care Physicians, and a non-clinical arm, our Management Services Organization (MSO) called CCP TASS, Inc. (TASS), in partnership with CDPHP. TASS provides all non-clinical functions so our clinicians can focus on patient care.
The healthcare landscape is ever changing, and the requirements placed upon practitioners can oftentimes seem like a burden. All CCP practices across the Capital Region receive centralized technical, administrative, and business support services through the MSO, TASS. This distinctive structure allows our physicians and advanced practitioners to focus solely on the practice of medicine, and our practitioners find special value in these services.
Our unique business model is attractive to practitioners and practices who find business functions like billing, compliance, and IT overwhelming. With the business operations centralized, our providers don’t need to outsource these responsibilities or take time away from patients to manage these functions themselves.
TASS, located in our Latham, NY campus at the Capital Region Health Park, is directed by our experienced health management team and includes:
- Quality Improvement
- Information Systems
- Health Data Analytics
- Revenue Cycle Management
- In-house Legal Counsel
- Contract Negotiation
- Operations Facilitation
- Patient Experience
- Marketing and Communications
- Materials Management
- Payroll/Benefits Management
- Government Affairs
- Facilities Management
With technical and administrative support available to practitioners, CCP is able to implement the most advanced technology while streamlining our workflows. This improves our physicians’ efficiency while creating scale.
We are constantly researching ways in which we can further improve our processes and eliminate unnecessary tasks. Our goal is to continually achieve the Quadruple Aim: to provide the highest quality healthcare possible, while making care more affordable and accessible to our patients, and to achieve patient and practitioner satisfaction.
Unique Benefits for Practitioners
Community Care Physicians’ distinct corporate structure yields unique benefits and opportunities for practitioners who are part of our organization.
Independence at the Office Level
Each practice functions with assistance from management, but is also involved in the decision making of the company.
CCP has a high engagement and affordable wellness program guided by physicians. Almost 35% of our workforce is participating in the program since its inception.
Commitment to Innovation
CCP’s medical practices belong to a single integrated health system, sharing a single practice management and electronic health records platform, Allscripts. Our practices and patients are connected utilizing a secure patient portal called FollowMyHealth™. CCP is a founding member of HIXNY, the Regional Health Information Organization, and shares clinical data electronically with hospitals, health plans and other physicians throughout the region. Additionally, we have developed and integrated technologies into our work-flows, including a telemedicine platform that allows for remote virtual video visits with our patients, and also TeleCare, a hands-free virtual scribing system that allows practitioners to work more efficiently and spend less time after hours with patient charts.
- CCP formed its own Risk Retention Group (RRG), or captive insurance company, to cover the professional liability risks of our physicians and other practitioners. All practitioners are eligible to become shareholders in the RRG.
- CCP offers a robust 401(k) for employees, which allows for post-tax contributions. CCP puts in a minimum of 3%. This is not a matching system, so you do not have to contribute to get a contribution.
- CCP provides investment education and access to a stock portal that allows employees to go to the stock market.
- CCP offers comprehensive benefit packages, competitive compensation, recruitment and retention bonuses, and generous paid time off.
- CCP offers company sponsored/paid STD/LTD/ Life/AD+D.
- You will have access to additional benefits including prepaid legal services, student loan assistance, Medicare workshops, and defensive driving.
- Part-time positions, job-sharing and flexible hours are often available for practitioners seeking these situations.
- These services are provided through CCP, so employees don’t have to coordinate these items independently.
At Community Care Physicians, we are committed to quality, innovation, our community, and the future of medicine. And while we’re not in this for the awards, we are proud to be recognized by our employees, our patients, and external organizations for our culture and the care we provide.

I have been living in the Capital Region for over 22 years. It has been a great place to work and raise a family. Practicing in a smaller city has allowed me to establish strong professional relationships with my specialty colleagues over the years that have benefited my patients greatly. It has also enabled me to take advantage of things I enjoy, like Broadway productions at the local theaters, Saratoga Race Track in the summer, great restaurants, and outdoor activities in the Adirondacks. Our children had the advantage of going to schools with strong curriculums and great reputations.
I completed my residency in 1994 and worked for Albany Medical Center until joining CapitalCare Family Practice Slingerlands of CCP in 2001. Since joining, my work/life balance has been much improved. I can truly appreciate the benefits of working in an independent physician model as compared to a hospital practice, it allows greater ability to influence changes in the organization, allowing each individual physician to have a voice. I can manipulate my schedule to benefit myself, my family and my patients. I also have the benefit of “full disclosure” in terms of our financial health. I feel all these things are essential to having a happy professional life.
