The U.S. is facing a SHORTAGE OF UP TO 95,000 PHYSICIANS despite team-based care.
As the main caregivers for uninsured and underinsured individuals, overburdened rural and inner-city COMMUNITY CLINICS SUFFER MOST from these shortages.
Community clinic patients often present with poorly treated chronic illnesses, contributing to AVOIDABLE MEDICAL COMPLICATIONS AND COSTS.
