This week’s Healthcare Business Weekly Update features a podcast from Dr. Jeff Schiff, who describes two key factors that can make care more complex, and presents the business case for creating measurable patient- and family-centered practices. Even a simple gesture like giving the clinic’s direct phone number to patients with chronic illness, he says, can have a surprising impact on patient satisfaction and clinic efficiency.
