For a number of years, physicians, as the most visible symbol of health care delivery, have been criticized, chastised, and blamed for everything — as the primary source of exploding health costs, practicing poor quality care, to being computer troglodytes for failing to accept money-losing electronic health records designed to document their every act.
Another great post by Dr. Reece. He has a keen insight into the tremendous difficulties and potential ramifications the new administration faces with its health care reform efforts.
Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
What will the reaction be if the physicians of this country are forced to bear the brunt of the burden imposed by some of the reform/HITECH/HIT agenda items ???
