Promoting independent physicians
When doctors have an ownership stake in the business, they work only for you. And they can provide care at a more affordable price.
Escalating administrative costs are causing many independent physicians to sell their practice to a hospital. Unfortunately, hospital-employed docs, while dedicated professionals, serve two masters—the patient and a corporate enterprise.
Independent physicians are free to follow their own clinical judgments, not a treatment protocol developed by a hospital administrator. And they can refer patients to the most appropriate, most affordable facility for treatment, not a high-priced facility owned by their employer. How can we ensure their continued existence and their role as premier patient advocates?
