The future is now

Elyas Bakhtiari at HealthLeaders Media:

By involving midlevel providers and using sophisticated information technology, primary care physicians may be able to double their productivity by 2020, according to a report released this week by healthcare intelligence company Sg2. With the help of nonphysician providers relying on evidence-based clinical protocols and standardized care plans, the primary care physicians of the future may see 8,000-10,000 patients a year, the report predicts.

My practice has been EMR-based from day one and my partner is a nurse practitioner.  We see about 8000 to 9000 patient visits a year.
