Bureaucracy Killed the Family Physician

Here is a nice summary in the Medical Economics magazine of why we are having such a shortage of family docs.  All of it, by the way, was predicted by me over the past 15 years with proof in this blog.  It is summarized as:

  • Bureaucracy
  • Red tape
  • More bureaucracy
  • Pay-for-performance
  • Quality indicators
  • Metrics
  • More red tape
  • Even more bureaucracy

All of this was created and imposed upon doctors by the federal government.  And the beauty is that some people think that the one who will fix this all will also be the government.  Really?  Child, please.
