The policy changes needed to improve family medicine

Video

We need to rethink how we pitch — and train — the specialty of family medicine.

Medical Economics recently sat down with Timothy Hoff, PhD, who wrote the new book, “Searching for the Family Doctor: Primary Care on the Brink.”

Hoff is a professor of management, healthcare systems and health policy at Northeastern University in Boston, and is the author of two other books about primary care: “Next in Line: Lowered Care Expectations in the Age of Retail- and Value-based Health” and “Practice Under Pressure: Primary Care Physicians and Their Medicine in the Twenty-First Century.”

In this video segment, Hoff discusses what policy changes are needed to improve family medicine and primary care.
