Venture Capital Helps Primary Docs

medical-recordsChanges in how doctors get reimbursed and new requirements such as electronic medical records are causing major headaches for physicians trying to remain independent. With venture capital funding, Chicago-based Village MD is helping independent physicians integrate their electronic databases with insurer’s claims systems. Their goal is to keep patients from being readmitted or retreated, thereby avoiding reduced payments and penalties tied to the Physician Quality Reporting System and other ACA initiatives.
