  1. Andy and Karen unleashed the Kraken. Again deceptively stating that they are reducing the burden while simultaneously increasing it 4 fold. Multiple measures under each objective (they claim are reduced), clinical practice improvement crap, Horrifying calculations, and all this ridiculousness makes a better system? Are they for real? How about prove it first. Then get back to us. My God, are they just wanting to push all physicians off a cliff? I kind of expected this, but this is NOT AN IMPROVEMENT ANDY/KAREN. Time to REALLY listen to front line providers. We HATE attestation, numerators denominators and all the other horribly burdensome regs you have piled on us. And it seems you just don’t get it. If we go nonPAR for medicare, we are the last ortho group at our hospital .Its looking like its inevitable.

  2. @ meltoots, If you look up Andy Slavitt’s background, you will notice that he was the top exec at United HealthCare – an insurance company
