We are adding new content to this website, working with respected thought leaders to promote positive changes in a health care system considered by many to be broken.
Now, more than ever before, the boundaries of time-honored health care are being changed and blurred. Although volatile economic and market forces impact all elements of care delivery to our citizens, shifting health care trends will exert additional influences on the way care is delivered.
As our nation's financial resources continue to experience relentless pressures from rising health care costs, there will be ongoing calls to abandon the traditional fee-for-service payment model. Physicians will increasingly be required to deliver care under greater scrutiny from health care systems intent on profitability and pressured to police spending amid dwindling resources and the growing demand for services.
DocOnomics will work to achieve the following aims:
- Promote innovation, development and implementation of comprehensive management platforms which maintain a focus on the core elements of health care that work most effectively to ensure quality, cost-effective delivery, e.g., maintaining effective physician-patient relationships in which wise, well-counseled decisions are the primary targets; and
- The realignment of market forces, where non-healthcare employers provide an effective counterbalance to the disproportionate influence exerted by health care systems.
