It is time to be the change.....is anyone out there listening? The true power lays in the hands of the patients and the doctors who really care about the welfare of the patients they serve.
Can we continue to play games by pretending there is some way to "follow the rules" of insurance contracts, coding minutia,etc, and NOT have it be at the expense of our patients and their lives?
When do we as a group of highly educated professionals stand up and say enough is enough? As long as we continue to participate in a system that does not honor the doctor patient relationship, we become enablers for the system to continue as is..... is that what we want?
Kind of strong words, but really... when do we ALL become the change we want to see?
