The Future of Primary Care

January 13, 2008

In an extended article on The Healthcare Blog, Brian Klepper writes on “ Bad Medicine: How The AMA Undermined Primary Care in America“. In a reaction to a Wall Street Journal article on the 10% cut in Medicare physician payments, he explains how the across the board cut changes nothing in terms on the erosion of primary care and family practice physicians in practice.  He  goes on to detail the failure of RVUs in balancing payments.

Although not related to ehealth, this is an important policy issue especially in an election season. Worth the read.
