Are Doctors Still Needed?

A survey of 1,100 U.S. patients by Accenture, a management consulting and technology services company, found that 90% of patients want tools such as online medical record access and appointments to self-manage their health care. But nearly the same percentage (85%) say they want to preserve their in-person interactions with their physicians when needed.

What?!?  How dare they want to meet with a real, live, authentic doctor?  That’s preposterous!  You can’t create a healthcare system that sabotages and handcuffs physicians with these kinds of  absurd demands by patients.  Well, that is going to throw a wrench in the covert plans of hospital administrators nationwide.  How are they going to increase their pay without getting rid of us?
