Thanks for all you do. We can’t do it without you. This week is Medical Assistants Recognition Week! It is a special opportunity to thank our hardworking medical assistants (MAs), and bring awareness to the amazing care they provide to our patients. Did you know there are close to 2,500 MAs at DaVita Medical Group? MAs play an important role in our clinics, working alongside doctors and nurses to provide exceptional patient care. According to the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA), the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that medical assisting is one of the nation’s fastest growing occupations.

Thank you to our talented and compassionate MAs for all you do for our patients today and every day! #medicalassistant #medicalassisting

Insurance companies are teaming up with nontraditional partners to keep patients out of hospitals.

Everything in healthcare is moving to the out-patient setting as patients want more care for lower cost and more convenience. Hospital systems are also adapting. They are adding out-patient offerings (including clinics, quick cares, free-standing ERs, out-patient surgery centers, home health, etc...) as the landscape of patient care evolves. This is helping to curve the astounding $3 trillion dollars spent in the U.S. that continues to increase.

As healthcare spending grows and customers demand more convenient care, insurance companies are teaming up with nontraditional partners to keep patients out of hospitals and emergency rooms. Hospitals will have to evolve to stay afloat.
