Will visits to see the Doctor decrease now that we know that the government has the final say on our medical care?

Government has medical procedures to be followed by Doctors when preventing, prescribing, treating patients.
Doctors have their hands tight when it comes to suggest the best care sort to speak?

  • The private insurance companies prevented me from getting affordable insurance for the last eight years, now I might be able to afford care through government plans that I can pay for, like MN. care. Here in florida , insurance is big business, no state tax.

  • "We know that health care is crippling businesses and making us less competitive, as well as breaking the banks of families all across America -- and part of the reason is we've got the most inefficient health care system imaginable,” Obama said. “We’re still using paper. We’re still filing things in triplicate. Nurses can’t read the prescriptions that doctors have written out. Why wouldn’t we want to put that on an electronic medical record that will reduce error rates, reduce our long-term cost of health care, and create jobs right now?” President Obama

     This line is confusing.


     Doctors have their hands tied now anyway because of private insurance companies. I'll admit the gov't having control is worse than insurance companies, but doctors have not been in control in ages. Few doctors have the ability to provide the absolute best care for their patients anymore. My doctor always asks what insurance I have before prescribing anything or ordering a test. She does that because the insurance company dictates what drugs I can have and what lab my blood test can go to and where I can have other tests like x-rays, etc.

    This statement just show how out of touch Obama really is. There are many, many providers that are already using EMR and even more who are already in the process of converting. He just wants to take credit for something that is already happening without his stupid interference. And most nurses can read their docs writing because they've worked with them long enough to understand them. They also ask the doc for clarification. If Obama meant to say pharmacists can't read the scrips... well most of them are very good at interpreting those things and they will call the office for clarification if they cannot read it. Obama thinks he knows so much, but whenever he opens his mouth he reveals how little he really knows.

  • You should call doctors, they already have their hands tied by HMO's and the insurance lobby.
