Glenn, Having gone through $50K and worked for nothing for 3 years I cannot reccomend starting your own triage service. Even with over a hundred docs in 3 states it was just not profitable. it is too hard to pay enough to get reliable people and have anything left over. I ended up selling the service to a larger national triage service and found that the minimum critical number of physicians must be huge to break even. Another problem in some areas is that docs just do not want to pay enough per call to be able to provide the service. I know it seems like it should be simple but I guarantee it is not. Sorry
