Dr. Ted (he’s not me) | The Economist

  • Dr. Ted (he’s not me) | The Economist – Comment from a user of The Economist.com that refers to the Kaiser Permanente study showing a 21.5 % decrease in office visits in Hawaii. (see http://content.healthaffairs.org/cgi/content/abstract/28/2/323 ). I agree that the majority of care to Americans is provided in small practices, as well as the idea that physicians who want to perform virtual care find it difficult with today's reimbursement approach. (50% of the reason I’m posting this is to clarify that I’m not this Dr. Ted. I post comments on others’ blogs as “Ted Eytan.”
