In an era of the patient-centered medical home and accountable care organizations, there has been a sea change in what is required for physicians to accomplish during a patient visit. Physicians need to learn how to work smarter, not harder, says Dr. David Eitrheim, a family physician with Mayo Clinic Health System–Menomonie.
By moving to a physician-nurse team-based approach to care, Dr. Eitrheim has been able to increase his practice’s relative value units (RVUs), while at the same time increasing patient access to care and improving outcomes and quality measurement scores.
