The Physician Shortage: THR’s Barclay Berdan On Physician Extenders, Technology [TX]

Posted over 2 years ago by Nicholas M Perrino

"How can Texas deal with the increased number of people seeking care from a physician workforce that is already stretched?

One answer is to leverage 'physician extenders' in a robust, well-coordinated network of primary care providers and specialists. Texas Health Resources is developing such a network that integrates services across a variety of innovative access models including convenient work-site and neighborhood clinics, outpatient surgical clinics, behavioral health services, diabetes resource centers, and hospital-based clinics.

Leveraging physician extenders and deploying innovative approaches to deliver health services can help meet the challenges of providing timely access to affordable, reliable health care for North Texans."
