Can small primary care practices be better than large practices? Researchers compares hospital admission rates for small versus large practices and here’s what they found. New research shows that small primary care practices have lower rates of preventable hospital admissions than larger practices. Practices with 1-2 physicians had 33 percent fewer preventable hospital admissions compared with practices with 10 to 19 physicians; practices with three to nine physicians had 27 percent fewer admissions. Researchers noted that long-standing assumptions have held that larger medical practices provide better care — in part, because they have more resources.

It doesn’t take expensive products to have beautiful glowing skin. These simple steps will help you get the healthy skin you need! 1.
