SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Meant to be purposefully vague. Invite any and all personal opinions of the course our specialty is headed. I see Press Ganey sinking it's blood sucking fangs further into our practice so that our pay is not simply "bonused" but "based" on it. Govnt will increase it's hand in telling us what we can and cannot order-by way of reimbursement- for what "they" deem not necessary. As other specialties are hit with the ACA pushback is going to get even worse. Yea, I really hope this us all way off base. This was stemmed from a discussion i was having with a couple of friends (EPs) and I thought it enlightening. I went through training with blinders on to this, focussed on just getting smart, being a good resident, etc. And I feel like a schmuck for not opening my eyes earlier. It's my fault for that. Now, can we as a specialty direct our own future? I sure hope so. Perhaps a played out topic...if so I apologize as I cannot search on tapatalk on my phone for some reason and I only use this program for my forum subscriptions.
