Speed dating matches physicians, patients

American Medical Association, February 10, 2010
Doc Shop, a program Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Hurst-Euless-Bedford launched to connect patients with obstetrician-gynecologists, was modeled after speed dating events. The first Doc Shop took place in September, with seven scheduled for 2010. The program has been successful enough that the hospital is expanding it to include pediatricians, with longer-term plans to include other primary care specialists.
