After hanging his shingle in a small town on the Missouri River in 1994, Dr. Tom Davis and his partners leveraged one of the first total-risk Medicare Advantage contracts into the creation of a regional health system. After 18 years of wonderfully autonomous practice, Dr. Davis sold his health system to a regional competitor for $132m and began traveling the country with one goal, using the lessons learned to mentor other clinicians and their organizations in how to quit the treadmill and practice with joy. Telemedicine, cash-pay revenue streams, value-based healthcare, and Dr. Davis’ unique, practical perspective has helped more than a million patients receive better care and left thousands of clinicians more fulfilled. He currently shares his wisdom in his online community app NewScript, available on Apple and Google play.   Mentor, Speaker, Author---Dr. Davis consistently releases great high-value content across his many channels so clinicians can serve their patients sustainably and with joy.   Another episode you may like: Episode 85 How to Live an Amazing Life on Less with Amy and Tim Rutherford of "GoWithLess”  Find full transcripts of DocWorking: The Whole Physician Podcast episodes on the DocWorking Blog  What if you had a team of trusted thinking partners, experienced coaches who have helped hundreds of physicians overcome obstacles and who know what works?  DocWorking THRIVE is the Physician Coaching and Community Subscription Package that Guides You as a Doctor to Embrace Life in the way that is most meaningful to you, integrate that with your work so you can truly thrive, and be a valued member of our growing private community of doctors from across the nation.
