Convergence of Friends

Physician’s Practice just ran this article [may be broken]. It’s a real treat for me because, once Dr. Stoller does her presentation about Ghana at our 2007 Users’ Conference, then all three of the principles of the article - Pam Moore, Dr. Stoller, and Susanne Madden - have given presentations at our UC!

Small world.

The article itself will frustrate anyone who works in this business. We already know how Oxford, et al, cheat. It’s remarkable, though, because people are finally starting to make these things known the public. I am hoping, meanwhile, that Pam Moore follows up with more focus on the non-fee schedule parts of the changes the inscos make. Yes, the fee schedule is important but, in 2007, it’s a smaller piece than ever (oooh, double meaning).
