Why Physician Engagement, Why Now?
Healthcare spending represents nearly 1/6th of the U.S. economy, and physicians dictate much of that spend. The spends have reached unmanageable proportions across the world. Without physician support, it’s impossible to make the changes necessary to improve outcomes and lower costs.
Medical Knowledge is doubling every 4 years. Today’s physicians are inundated with information. They often lack the time they need to keep up with the fast pace of expanding body of medical knowledge. To be effective, information that supports physician’s practice and their patients must be succinct and convenient, curated for accuracy and focussed, from a source they trust. It needs to trigger / enable dialogue between peers and provide a continuous feedback loop to give them a voice in creating change and improving care delivery.
ActiveMD creates a physician community. Here physicians learn from experts and peers within a trusted environment and help each other deliver better care for the people they serve.
