(I CAN’T GET NO) Satisfaction

The American College of Radiology’s Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute published a study which concluded that physicians could lose up to a total of $1.3 billion a year from their Medicare pay by not satisfactorily reporting quality measures to the program.  You can read the rest of the article in the American Medical News but it is so convoluted that I got disgusted and bored.   The truth is that these quality initiatives have never been proven to help patients and has been created only to save money by confusing and frustrating physicians.

It did give me a chance to put in a good Rolling Stones song title and picture, though, so I feel good about that.
