[Infographic] The Rising Cost of HealthcareFebruary 2nd, 2011 0 Min read Blog
I recently found an infographic entitled The Rising Cost of Healthcare. The graphic portrays how healthcare expenses for the US population have increased over the last decade. Working at CompHealth, I have the opportunity to see firsthand how hospitals and clinics fight these rising costs. When organizations use physician assistants and nurse practitioners in addition to physicians, they are able to offset some of the costs. Also, more physicians, hospitals and clinics are being educated on the concept of locum tenens physicians who cover on a temporary basis, which is an efficient way for hospitals and clinics to meet the demand in their community.
