Great mission, horrible environment
medical provider (Former Employee) – New Mexico – November 7, 2015
I came to the company five years ago with high aspirations and close alignment with the company's mission and vision. Sadly, what I saw in the field might have been on the other side of the planet from corporate headquarters. Medical providers come to this company with high aspirations of making a difference in the rural and under-served areas of New Mexico. As a provider, you will be expected to be highly productive (22-25 patients per day). Even after doing so, you will not be rewarded or provided with adequate support staff.
Sadly, many providers leave after one year because they find that the mission just doesn't match what is happening in the field. The company has a strange system of hiring managers to over see the providers and clinics who have little or no experience in a leadership role ( and many don't even have a college degree). Cost containment? These managers then have complete and absolute control over what happens in the clinic including whether or not a provider has support staff. Sadly, this system allows for discrimination, fraudulent activities, lack of essential resources, and corruption. Hence, good medical providers leave. Interestingly enough, the company rarely asks medical providers to complete exit interviews. I guess the revolving door is the standard for PMS and the corporate level has no desire for change.
