Driscoll Health Plan places great emphasis on the wellness of its Members. A large part of quality health care delivery is treating the whole patient and not just the medical condition. Sensitivity to differing cultural influences, beliefs and backgrounds can improve a provider’s relationship with patients and in the long run the health and wellness of the patients themselves. DHP encourages all providers to be sensitive to varying cultures in the community.
