The Snowball Effect: Why Selecting a Doctor is One of Your Most Important Healthcare Decisions
People do more background research to buy a new car than they do to find a new doctor. As a result, employers and employees frequently pay too much for over-testing, complications from undertreatment, unnecessary surgery and brand name medications.
In this podcast, Dr. Eric Bricker, Compass Chief Medical Officer, will discusses:
• The negative ‘Snowball Effect’ of choosing the wrong doctor
• How relying on friends, family, doctor office location and appointment availability are an inefficient way to choose a doctor – and can lead to higher healthcare costs
• How to find high quality, cost-effective providers
• How to empower employees to make smarter healthcare decisions that lower healthcare costs and improve care
