Dr. Jeffrey Harrell: A Leader in the Complex World of American Healthcare

The American healthcare industry is incredibly complex, often way down by bureaucracy and politics, and utterly confusing.

Thankfully, there are those who are able to rise above the uncertainty and seemingly impossible complexities around them in the healthcare industry to offer leadership, guidance, and insight.

Dr. Jeffrey Harrell is one of these leaders, and he’s got quite some wisdom to share.

Dr. Jeffrey Harrell, PA is an accomplished healthcare provider with years of experience in the medical field. After seven years practicing urgent and emergent medical care, Jeff looks back on his career with a sense of contentment and pride.

Military to Medicine

“After the military, I was looking for a way to help people back home,” he explains. “When I began working in medicine, I found that I really loved caring for people, and I was able to make a positive impact on so many lives. It just seemed like a perfect fit.” As was made painfully clear by the pandemic, working in the medical field is far from easy. Jeff has no misconceptions about the difficulties of his work in medicine, but he meets each day with a positive mindset and a productive attitude. “It can be a really tough job, but it’s incredibly fulfilling. I wouldn’t trade it for anything,” says Jeff.

On the Post-Pandemic Medical Industry

Whether it’s growing more complex or more expensive, medicine is always evolving. With a global pandemic having turned the medical industry on its head for over a year (and counting), there are undoubtedly more changes still to come. For all novice healthcare providers looking to get their start, Jeff has a few insights and warnings (from an insider’s perspective) about where the industry is headed.

Jeff sees a turbulent future ahead for healthcare providers. Throughout the pandemic, he watched in disappointment as promises made to frontline workers went unfulfilled. “Many of us were told that we were lucky, that we should simply be glad to still have jobs in the end,” he recalls. The rampant maltreatment and lack of appreciation for American healthcare workers is a widespread issue, and unfortunately, it’s one that he doesn’t see going away any time soon. Despite their education and experience, American healthcare providers are consistently overworked, underpaid, and undervalued.

Jeff explains, “Bureaucracy and regulation are starving the medical field and bringing about dangerous levels of inefficiency and inefficacy.”

“The medical field is undergoing some extensive changes right now,” says Jeff, “but they aren’t all negative. There’s always hope for the future.” Jeff hopes that the current trend towards defensive medicine — which values decisions that protect doctors from liability over those that help patients — will change in favor of a more offensive approach. “We need to focus on giving patients the care they really need, instead of doing just enough to cover our own backs,” he says.

What’s Next for Jeffrey?

Jeffrey sees himself as a jack of all trades; he currently offers medical business consulting, concierge medicine, project management, and many more services. As to what the future holds for Jeff, he’s always looking out for the next big opportunity to make his mark on the medical field. Jeffrey made his way to success by working hard, finding niches, and setting unique goals for himself; with his singular approach, he’s ready to take the medical world by storm.
