Currently there are "3 comments" on this Article:

  1. Why is Paul Levy still relevant?

    Shouldn’t he join Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods and others and just disappear into obscurity?

    Who is he to judge others in this industry?

  2. The relevance of Levy is irrelevant to the analysis offered. I bookmarked and shared it. Purple prose aside, it is spot on.

  3. “Patient advocates should be marketing V/D/T to patients to create demand, not holding doctors accountable for the lack of it.”

    They kind of go hand-in-hand in a policy arena that is being shaped. Do we design policy for today’s demand, or try to forecast an ideal market demand and design for that? Pro’s and con’s to both approaches, but withholding incentive money is a fairer way to affect change than penalizing reimbursements. With no incentive to design for ideal demand, policy will be crafted that makes it easy for providers to sweep these technological capabilities under the rug and continue to get paid top dollar for bare minimum service. If you are worried about being penalized for patients’ lack of willingness to participate, then let’s set up a federal registry of patients who’ve requested their data and track how many of them actually are able to obtain it. Don’t wanna go there? Then accept 5% as the reasonably low threshold that it is, and hire a summer intern to come work with patients to sign up in your office.
