So a patient posted on Reddit their bill for their c-section. It turns out when…
PCMH, ACO, Meaningful Use and Circle Jerks
A report in Health IT Analytics , as highlighted in an AAFP brief, says that the “PCMH (patient-centered medical home) model can help practices with health care reforms such as meaningful use reporting and accountable care. PCMHs stress coordinating care and maintaining patient contact, and have work flow systems and strategies to manage patient population groups, which are important to meaningful use and ACO development, the report says.”
If the above sounds like gobbledygook to you then you are not alone. The reason is that PCMH, Meaningful Use, ACOs and such are all fabricated entities meant to make the people who created them feel good about themselves. I just found it interesting and funny how all three could be mentioned so much in the same report. It is like some kind of administrative mega circle jerk where nothing gets done but everyone pats each other on the back.
