As reviewed in a recent JAMA article, the United States has the highest level of rural versus urban healthcare disparity among developed countries.
Historically, there have been many reasons for this. Teaching hospitals tend to be located in larger cities. Their doctors and patients benefit from substantial case volumes, affiliated medical schools, research budgets, and fellowship programs. These factors help support more data-driven standards of care, in turn leading to better outcomes. However, as pointed out in the JAMA article, patients in rural settings enjoy advantages over their urban counterparts. For example, they often have healthier lifestyles, and are more likely to have regular primary care physicians.
Thus, clinicians in different geographic settings have much to learn from each other. They and their patients will benefit from meaningful and continued collaboration. Circles are designed to foster this collaboration in a number of ways. For example:
Circles are product-agnostic, built by clinicians for clinicians, minimally burdensome, and low cost. However clinicians collaborate, it is clear that doing so in a sustained and thoughtful manner is greatly to the benefit of their professional learning, and will drive better outcomes for patients in all regions of the country.

In this newsletter, we summarize the work of leading physicians as they develop clinical decision support for common musculoskeletal pathologies. Through the quality improvement and pragmatic studies embedded in their Circles, those clinicians are generating sustained financial and professional value for themselves, and improving patient care, with minimum burden. Moreover, their Circles are often supported by industry.
