Medicine is about taking care of and healing patients, and no one knows this better than physicians and the teams of healthcare professionals that support them. As significant changes continue to reshape U.S. healthcare, however, physicians are faced with unprecedented obstacles and pressures. Increased regulatory burdens, hassles with getting paid by insurance companies, and increased costs of operating a practice are taking a toll on physicians, sometimes diminishing their enthusiasm for medicine and affecting patient experience negatively. It is clear that physicians are in need of innovative solutions that make it easier for them to focus more of their time on what they do best—helping patients.
