Administrators Losing Jobs and Doctors Taking Over Healthcare

empty-meeting-room

In an amazing turn of events, administrators are starting to lose their jobs everywhere.  Hospitals have asked doctors for their input on making healthcare better and this was the number one request.  Surprisingly, hospital board of directors all around the country have agreed and have been purging the ranks of administrators by over 94%.  This has cut overhead in these hospitals and medical groups by 97%.  Flush with coffers filled with newly found assets, hospitals have begun lowering their prices while at the same time making them transparent. Amazingly enough, no one has noticed the loss of these administrators. “It was weird but when I was told of the exodus I didn’t find anything different other than the fact that no one was bugging us with stupid crap anymore,” said Jenny Moss of City Hospital in Georgia.

Feeling the pressure of being the only administrators left, hospital CEOs around the country have started to decreasing  their own salaries and bonuses to a more appropriate level.  In most cases they have dropped by over 84%.  To fill the void of the “missing” administrators, many hospitals have promoted a couple of doctors to do a few extra tasks and take over a few different committees.  These doctors were able to fulfill these new roles with as little as 20 minutes extra time a week.

    This just in:
    CMS has announced plans to scrap MACRA, MIPS, MU and all EHR requirements for doctors.

    Andy Slavitt, CMS director says, “We have lost the hearts and minds of doctors and we desperately want to win them back. Therefore, we will be adding 50% to all Medicare reimbursements to doctors and ceasing requirements for these horrific mandates which have imposed themselves between doctors and their ability to care for their patients. This should have been done a long time ago.”

    Was also in the news that Wanda Filer, president of the AAFP, says that she realizes that the PCMH is a total disaster, a self-inflicted wound that has done incredible damage to America’s family physicians. The organization is launching a new PR campaign to inform the public of the dangers of the PCMH, and will actively refuse to work with CMS or any insurers that try to push, to quote Filer, “this royal cluster-fuck on hard working family doctors.”
