We had a big meeting at work today kind of looking back at what we’ve done over the past year and looking forward to plans for the coming year. And I learned one really interesting thing during all of the discussion. One out of every fifteen patients seen in an emergency room in the Unites States is seen by a TeamHealth physician. I thought that was pretty neat! Sometimes in the daily grind of fixing bugs and trying to meet release deadlines, it’s easy to forget the larger picture. But the program that I work on is used to recruit, credential, enroll, schedule, and pay all of our physicians, so it’s a big part of keeping TeamHealth going. It’s nice to be reminded what the end result is: better medical care for millions of patients and their families.
