Do You Practice in a Rural Location? Access ISMIE's New Guide on Reducing Your Risks

September 3, 2019

Sixty million Americans – that's one in five – live in rural areas. If you practice medicine in a rural location, you know the adversities these patients face, including difficulty accessing healthcare, food insecurity, and higher rates of chronic disease.

You also know the challenges you face: long hours, house calls, and limited access to healthcare resources to name a few. These difficulties can increase your liability risk.

ISMIE recently published a whitepaper to help address these issues, titled A Rural Physician's Guide to Mitigating Risks. The guide discusses various strategies for maintaining an effective medical practice in a rural location, including useful technologies, recruiting and retention tips, and practical changes for managing the flow of your workday.
