Must See Medical TV


You are not going to believe this but “the AAFP is offering its members a free series of on-demand webcasts to help them analyze their Quality and Resource Use Reports, which are important in understanding the implementation of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act”!  Awesome.  I hope these are comedies? Or dramas?  Hmmm, what could they call them?  How about:

  • Captain QRUR and his sidekick Mighty MACRA
  • V.B.P.M. Investigative Service
  • CHIPs (umm..wait, that was done)

Any other ideas to get someone to watch this crap?

    I want to see CSI Clinical Practice – they investigate the murder of a primary care practice every week, and show the cause of death. They only have to film two or three, and send up reruns every week.

      The cause of death is easy. Over-govermentation.
