Value in Healthcare
Great Lakes OSC has ranked #1 in the state of Michigan
for quality of care for the past 2 years while also demonstrating
low costs for care
Welcome to Great Lakes Physicians Organization
Great Lakes Physicians Organization strives to provide our patients with high-quality, low-cost care and to improve all health outcomes through better coordination of care between health care providers.
What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH)?
The PCMH model has been adopted by many Great Lake Organized Systems of Care (OSC) practices to augment the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of health care, which is centered around the patient. Under this model, primary care physicians work with patients to establish and achieve personal health goals. Hallmarks of PCMH include improved preventative care, higher quality of care, and increased patient engagement in their own health. Due in large part to this model, patients belonging to PCMH-designated practices are avoiding emergency room visits and hospital stays. While the PCMH model is most notably seen in improving primary care, it also encourages coordination with specialist physician. All Great Lakes OSC primary care practices are PCMH-designated.
What is Great Lakes Organized Systems of Care (OSC)?
Great Lakes Organized Systems of Care (GLOSC) is a network subset of Great Lakes Physicians Organization (GLPO) comprised of primary care and specialist physicians working to coordinate care across all settings for the patient population. Great Lakes OSC is currently comprised of approximately 125 physicians throughout the counties of Bay, Clare, Clinton, Gladwin, Gratiot, Isabella, Midland, Montcalm, Saginaw, and Tuscola. Great Lakes OSC strives to streamline health care through a variety of channels including reducing the redundancy of tests and labs, encouraging improved coordination and integration of care across settings, and adapting to the unique needs of the patient population. The end result is high quality, low cost care for our patients.
Great Lakes PO aims to help member practices and providers improve a myriad of processes, whether it be through reporting and guidance to improve quality and lower costs, providing general healthcare-related consulting, or offering direct technical support. Through the member portal, users can access various reports and resources which are exclusive to GLPO/GLOSC members.

Emphasis on Efficiency
Great Lakes OSC providers operate within an efficient network to provide optimal utilization of services for common conditions, procedures, and labs.
Great Lakes OSC providers operate around the Patient Centered Medical Home and Patient Centered Medical Home Neighbor model, emphasizing patient control and patient-centered delivery of care, which means that there will be no gaps or miscommunications occurring in the course of patient care, regardless of setting or provider.
