It seems unlikely that doctors need even more bureaucracy.
Unnecessary regulations and increased paperwork are drowning us and reducing quality of care. We have allowed just "one more thing" to be added over and over again. The camel's back is now breaking. I have never seen physicians as depressed and stressed in my 20 years of practice. At each visit, I am required to tell the government whether the patient I am seeing had a flu shot last winter! Please help me understand how that improves care. I know the many quality metrics (i.e.: check this box) mean well, but they are having the opposite effect. They are diminishing quality because they (the boxes) become the focus of each visit, rather than the human interaction.
