The dwindling number of independent doctors is having a catastrophic impact on the cost and quality of patient care, as well as the rate of physician burnout. As more doctors are rapidly becoming employees of larger systems, the result is fragmented care, severe cost increases, and enforcement of hospital directives instead of patient focus.
Independent Doctors of South Carolina (IndeDocs) was created to protect and promote independent practice, ensuring that physicians remain advocates for the patients they serve. IndeDocs provides education and support to doctors-in-training, colleagues, and employed physicians who are curious about independent practice and need help embarking on that path.
IndeDocs also educates non-physicians on the ways independent physicians offer better value, access, and quality when it comes to patient care, and advocates for policy changes that will put the power of choice back in the hands of patients and their doctors.
