The current healthcare system in the United States is a disaster. That may be kind; it’s a catastrophe. Insurance providers are driving a significant change in their reimbursement models to improve health and reduce costs. This shift starts at the source of healthcare: with primary care doctors. Insurance providers are rewarding primary care providers that can transition their business model from the “old model” of fee-for-service (think: high traffic, over-billing, low quality of care) to the “new model” of managed care (think: preventative healthcare on a capitation base). Further exposing how broken the healthcare system is, primary doctors are overloaded. On average, these doctors can work 51 hours a week and see 20 patients a day. That’s why major primary care providers, such as Skylight Health Group Inc. (TSXV:SHG) (OTCQX:SHGFF), Oak Street Health Inc. (NYSE:OSH), 1Life Healthcare Inc. (NASDAQ:ONEM), Teladoc Health Inc. (NYSE:TDOC), and Jack Nathan Medical Corp. (TSXV:JNH) are helping.

Look at Skylight Health Group Inc. (TSXV:SHG)(OTCQX:SHGFF) for example

Skylight Health Group Inc. (TSXV:SHG; OTCQX: SHGFF), a multi-state primary care management group in the United States, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Raymond James Ltd., as sole bookrunner and co-lead underwriter and Stifel GMP as co-lead underwriter on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters (collectively the “Underwriters”) pursuant to which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase, on a bought deal basis, 8,572,000 common shares of the Company at a price of $1.40 per Common Share for gross proceeds of approximately $12 million.
