Doc Says

Team Members

David Beiser, Greg Muender, Chip Vanek

Preventable hospital re-admissions waste $25 billion per year and contribute to excess morbidity and mortality. Poor-discharge plans, medication compliance, and follow-up drive these numbers.

Extending the physician’s reach beyond the hospital walls, DocSays will reduce 30-day re- admission rates and initiate long-term healthy habits.
