Problems & Observations
of Observation’s Problems
How do you kill something
that’s not supposed to be alive?
Evidently, Stephen King is the not the only one who can dream up
something that JUST WON’T DIE
Finally Friday! Broadcasts are Sponsored by
The Health Law Partners, and Sound Physicians
THIS WEEK, we’re privileged to have Dr. Ann Sheehy with us, to go over some recent work by the Public Policy Committee of the Society of Hospital Medicine. Ann is the Division Head for Hospital Medicine, at the University of Wisconsin.
Join us and we promise you a BRILLIANT presentation with INCREDIBLE graphics and charts and other STUFF that I PROMISE YOU YOU WILL WANT TO STEAL. Actually, I think you can freely use this stuff, but we’ll talk to Ann about that and see. So. There’s that.
BELOW IS A CLIP FROM ANN’S TESTIMONY BEFORE THE HOUSE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE ON HEALTH, ON MAY 20 2014:
To hear Ann’s testimony, advance to about 20 seconds into the clip… I tried to get the clip close to her speaking…
The question for this week is: CAN WE GET RID OF THIS @#$%&! NON-STATUS STATUS THINGEE THAT NO ONE UNDERSTANDS?
SO… THIS week, our Panel will be discussing :
- WHAT happened that created Observation?
- WHAT are the financial implications of Observation?
- HOW has this affected hospitals in general?
- WHAT is the Society of Hospital Medicine doing to combat this?
- HOW can YOU get involved to make Observation DIE?
So join us, share your own insights and bring your questions for us!
