Abstract

Given the current state of the U.S. healthcare system, with increasingly complicated regulations and paperwork and decreasing reimbursements, the question arises: Is it possible to provide safe, high-quality healthcare and reduce costs? Furthermore, is it possible to care for the health of your patients while simultaneously caring for the financial health of your practice and promoting improvement in the overall health of the planet? This article will review some steps currently being taken by various companies and hopefully stimulate ideas for changes you may want to consider for your own practice, hospital, or institution.
