Probably the main one is that those who enter data, i. E. , physicians and other clinicians, are usually doing so for reasons other than data analysis. I have often said that clinical documentation can be what stands between a busy clinician and going home for dinner, i. over the counter viagra E. , he or she has to finish charting before ending the work day. I also know of many clinicians whose enthusiasm for entering correct and complete data is tempered by their view of the entry of it as a data blackhole. That is, they enter data in but never derive out its benefits. sales of viagra I like to think that most clinicians would relish the opportunity to look at aggregate views of their patients in their practices and/or be able to identify patients who are outliers in one measure or another. Yet a common complaint i hear from clinicians is that data capture priorities are more driven by the hospital or clinic trying to maximize their reimbursement than to aid clinicians in providing better patient care.

I questioned just how much of what doctors do today can really be replaced by algorithms, particularly the doctor-patient relationship. I then asked if khosla was right and answered myself – maybe.

I wasn’t so sure. I then stated that if there is a revolution in healthcare, we docs needed to make ourselves a part of it now.

This is a perilous topic for both, but whoever wins this debate within the debate will take a big step to winning on november 6th. The affordable care act, or obamacare as both candidates now call it, will be center stage. The president will offer his standard defense, saying it helps middle-class families by making insurance more affordable and more secure. But the president knows a full-throated defense will not work. A majority of americans have consistently supported repeal since day one. Rather than defend the indefensible – higher costs, higher taxes, medicare cuts, government expansion – the president will attack. First, he will tie together obamacare and the reform law gov. Romney signed in massachusetts, arguing that they are the same. Gov. Romney should stipulate that there are some policy similarities between the two, but that the differences are what matter. He ca.
