Rural Physicians Group is staffed by hospitalist and surgicalist physicians that are committed to providing excellent patient care in the most cost-effective manner. Each physician understands the business of healthcare and is a champion of implementing EHR/EMR-CPOE, core measure compliance, and enhancing the patient experience.
OUR SURGICALISTS IMPROVE PATIENT OUTCOMES BY KEEPING SURGERY LOCAL.
With full-time, dedicated surgeons on site, your patients will most likely be treated by the same surgeon pre-surgery and post-surgery.
WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER A SURGICALIST PROGRAM:
Full-time general surgeons are available 24/7, 365 days per year, rotating every 14 days. In fact, 90% of surgical patients will be seen by the same surgeon for surgery and post discharge follow up. This helps to limit risk exposure with stabilization and transfer of high acuity patients.
Communication between the PCP, ED physician, and hospitalists are enhanced. Surgicalists are available for outpatient consultations with community providers.
Earlier surgical evaluation, intervention, and discharge increases the quality of care at your hospital.
Increased ED throughput with timely evaluations and dispositions, increased CMI, decreased transfers out of the community, and increased ancillary support all produce a higher level of efficiency at your hospital.
Our surgicalists participate in medicine committees, support excellent core measure compliance, and are champions of EMR/CPOE implementations.
Because we work with hospitals on a long-term basis, our surgicalists are considered part of the hospital and community. It’s a more stable, long-term solution to continuity of care.
At the end of the day, Rural Physicians Group exists to provide a higher level of care to patients in need, and our surgicalist program was designed to keep rural communities healthy.
