Patients aren’t the only ones feeling the pain

Provider burnout, limited resources, operational challenges, consumerism and declining reimbursement threaten the health and well-being of our medical groups today. It’s difficult to develop comprehensive solutions to address the core issues while managing the day-to-day operation, patient satisfaction and changing care model. So where does the medical group turn for help?

Experienced executives from health systems, physician groups and Premier are coming together to create solutions through the Physician Enterprise Collaborative.
