Taken together, these views are a clarion call to action for primary care providers to reassess how their choice of reimbursement models and technology can have a positive—or negative—impact on clinical and financial outcomes. In this age of shrinking margins, higher material costs, and declining revenue, there's never been a better time to rethink how primary care delivery and reimbursement models can work together to drive positive change.
