Let the games begin!

On one side are ambitious third parties in healthcare reform – whose goal is to save money by taking control of healthcare decisions from doctors and patients. Using the very EHRs the doctors and patients are still paying for, mystery algorithms will churn out money-saving computerized solutions that repeatedly signal that doctors are paid too damn much.

 On the other side are doctors with practice consultants. Their goal is to maximize profits by gaming the stakeholders’ half-baked money-saving ideas which assume doctors are idiots.
