"We understand that quality patient outcomes belong to those who practice team care, said James E. McLean, MD, President of Hospital TeamCare West, “thus, ‘I Love TeamCare.’"
Healthcare facilities and physicians must consider a number of critical issues, which, if not properly handled, run the risk of costly repercussions. An article printed in a January, 2011 edition of The Palm Beach Post, reported that, “the Affordable Care Act changes Medicare payment incentives,” requiring doctors and hospitals to take a serious look at how they plan to deal with a line-up of likely road blocks, all of prevalent concern.
Peter Kern, Retired Executive Director of Palmerton Hospital, in Northeast Pennsylvania, recognizes the dramatic changes in today’s healthcare environment, and believes that hospitals can benefit greatly by utilizing the method of outsourced physicians, in delivering quality patient care.
“It seems the team care approach is not only accepted today, but encouraged by doctors and hospitals,” Kern said. “I see this as a continuing trend in the future. Although I’ve been out of the loop, so to speak, for a number of years, I believe it will continue to grow.”
When recruiting doctors themselves, hospitals are responsible for all facets of services provided, including potential lawsuits, measuring throughput, and measuring physician performance. These issues require decision-makers to understand the role of physicians, which is almost impossible. Because doctors respond to doctors, Hospital TeamCare’s business structure results in optimal throughput, shortened patient wait-times, and fewer lawsuits, making the outsourced physician services provider the obvious answer for hospitals.
But what makes Hospital TeamCare the wise choice among physician outsourcing providers? Let the physicians, who come backed with more than 70 years combined experience, demonstrate the power behind the “I Love TeamCare" brand.
