I enjoyed reading this blog post. It provides some important context around the costs of a primary care practice and the extra, unpaid work they often have to complete in order to “do the right thing” for their patients.
Having gone from being an employee to a business owner/operator, I can attest to the added business and accounting skills one needs, along with the extra work that has to be done, to ensure that the operation is viable. I have been lucky enough to find many IT tools, and services providers, to minimize the effort to run my business, but I am not dealing with all the regulations and complexity of multiple payers’ policies that doctors are. How can healthcare IT let doctors get back to provide care?
