Why are there differences in the quality of outpatient care provided by resident and staff physicians?
The overall goal of the Session Long Project is to examine health care delivery in the United States. In Module 1 we studied the economic realities that may ultimately impact the healthcare industry. However despite the impending bursting of the bubble, we must still implement Obamacare. One of the important aspects of the new law is the connecting the evaluation standard of quality to reimbursement. This is a departure for our industry and might have a significant impact on how we do business.
