New models of providing affordable healthcare are emerging and being integrated into practice. The Patient Centered Medical Home concept, expanded roles for practitioners, electronic medical records, and telehealth are only a few  of the new approaches. As would be expected, these changes have a direct effect on teaching healthcare professionals. Find out more!
