Giving a Voice to Physicians and Patients

To maintain a thriving medical practice, independent physicians need a reliable means of joint contracting that encourages and rewards top-quality performance, provides access to the technological and networking infrastructures necessary to communicate effectively with patients and other physicians, and sensibly realigns financial incentives in the complex fee-for-service health care system.
