    The University of Michigan has teamed up with the Physicians Organization of Western Michigan recently to create a group known as the Physician Organization of Michigan. The group already has over five hundred and seventy members and is expected to be complete by January of 2011.

    . One goal of the group is to offer independent physicians and other medical groups access to informational technology, administrative services, and clinical services. It is highly believed that this will help independent medical groups meet the challenges of an evolving medical environment, without forcing them to join a large system. Independent physicians will be granted access to the University of Michigan's resources, whether they be human or material.

    Another goal of the new Physician Organization of Michigan is to provide a sort of professional development. Doctors of one group can now learn from doctors' of another group experiences. They will also learn through shared techniques. One technique may be working in a certain hospital and physicians of another might want to implement it in their own. The alliance of doctors also allows western Michigan hospitals to have an equal advantage in recruiting University of Michigan medical students.

    The group is also expected to help keep costs to a minimum. New federal rules are requiring all doctors to move away from paper charts and to steer towards a completely computerized system. Not all small hospitals have the revenue to comply with the federal government's demands. The Physician Organization of Michigan will help deflate come of these costs by allowing smaller hospitals to use parts of bigger hospital's systems. In these days, doctors are seeing more patients, which causes them to fill out more paperwork from insurance companies. Smaller medical groups do not have all the necessary man power to fill out all the paperwork in a timely fashion. With a group of over five hundred and seventy doctors, though, it will take some of the strain off of the not so big groups and allow them to focus on what they are there to do: heal patients.
