As the daughter of an infertility specialist, Emily Maxson grew up with a strong understanding of medicine and an appreciation for the role of specialists. But she also learned about the challenge of access and the importance of primary care. As a primary care physician and Chief Medical Officer of Aledade, Emily helps independent primary care physicians participate in accountable care organizations, preserve their independence and financial viability, and boost quality and access for patients.

In this episode of the HealthBiz podcast, Emily and I discuss the role of primary care, how physicians have fared during the pandemic, the interaction of technology adoption and reimbursement, and Emily’s predictions –or hopes– for the future.

She recommends two books: Little Bets: How Breakthrough Ideas Emerge from Small Discoveries by Peter Sims and Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard by Chip Heath and Dan Heath.
