Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine — LECTURE: Dr. Timothy Law “Healthcare in the Heartland: Paid to Play” or Medical Fee for Service
April 6, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dr. Timothy Law Lecture: “Healthcare in the Heartland: Paid to Play,” or Medical Fee for Service
Dr. Timothy Law will be talking about his practice as a rural medical practitioner. He will be discussing his work with the Amish community and how he has formed a very successful rural practice built on a medical fee for service model. Dr. Law is a Assistant Professor and Medical Director for CTRU, & SHAPe as well as a Associate Director of Rural and Urban Scholars Pathway.
POST-DEBATE SUMMARY: Forty students attended this event, with 25 signing up for more information about BRI. Dr. Law discussed the benefits of directing his own practice, especially one that is rural and that deals with the Amish population. He talked about the costs and fees associated with owning your own practice and ways to maximize patient care while also making a decent living. It was really interesting to learn about how he interacts with his patients and some of the payment forms that he has received, which is a benefit to his more informal rural practice. He has also been able to get many of our medical students involved in this experience, giving them hands-on clinical and treatment experience. Dr. Law is a great mentor for our school, and we always enjoy having him speak to learn the different ways we can provide excellent patient care, while still making a great living.
