Doctor's bearing the cost? What else is new? 

While the debate continues over how many ObamaCare enrollees are actually paying their premiums, one aspect of the law temporarily rewards those who actually stop paying – and doctors may wind up bearing the cost. http://buff.ly/1jV6wQC

This is what I'm talking about. Just like the stethoscope is synonymous with healthcare professionals, I think Glass is going to be as well.

I agree that opening up this data is good. I'm also glad that the media that is picking up the story have clearly highlighted that the doctors that have benefited from these big payouts are very few.

Regarding the data itself, I'm also in agreement that the information without context can be very damaging. 
 
The transparency movement continues (good), but the Medicare physician payment data may be misinterpreted (bad!)

I think the currency of ideas will be driven by the few. 

IMHO, the medical profession is trained to adhere to proven protocols and guidelines backed by research and statistics.  Thus ideas have little room unless there is science behind it. 

Having said that, there is art in treating patients. So not all is science. 

However, it seems to me that the currency that the new generation will have to earn, is the art of aligning the abundant access of information with those ideas into the proper "context" for patient. 

Physicians that succeed in that role will succeed as physicians. 
 
The evolution of our profession in a networked world must involve attention to how we think and share in the great wide open.

My friend +Chip Hart and I discuss my practice's credit card policy, why I think it is important to have one, and why I think every practice should adopt the program.

I'm intrigued and fascinated by what Mr. D-O-double G is doing.

I think there huge potential for a model like this to work in the pediatric world and with huge ROI.

I think it is great Turntable Health is focusing on adult primary care, but in my humble opinion if you align children and their families to live healthy lifestyles with the assistance of pediatricians, nutritionist, social workers and behavioral health specialist, the model can potential transform adult medicine in as little as 15 or 20 years.
 
+Turntable Health in the press!
The concierge-style business model, which is growing in Las Vegas, is getting positive reviews from patients, but how it will fare in sync with Obamacare remains to be seen ...

I walk and run this trail all the time. It is a great place. I recommend it. Whether you are walking the dog, doing a little hiking adventure with the kids, or a trail run.
