HCP Entrepreneurship: Making a Difference in Medicine
Episode 5 – February 4, 2023
Guests: Dr. Arlen Meyers and Dr. Jeffrey Hausfeld
Over the past few decades, healthcare providers have been compelled to move from the traditional idea of medicine where “physicians take care of patients” to today’s model where increasingly “providers take care of insured lives.” This loss of connectivity between a patient and their doctor has worn away the fabric of what medicine used to be. Seeking alternative models and innovations, physician-business leaders Dr. Arlen Meyers and Dr. Jeffrey Hausfeld co-founded the Society for Physician Entrepreneurs (SOPE) to empower physicians and other professionals to innovate healthcare through entrepreneurship. This is their story.
