Then there is this those electronic records touted as the cost saving -- vision health care vision of tomorrow talked and healthcare law today.
Well you might as well stick a syringe and -- because is not happening -- -- -- he's not happen and I've been thought it would.
But the Obama folks insists it's really not their fault it's those clueless doctors and hospitals to the person who says that's not what's up doc.
Doctor -- years says.
This whole record thing was of bureaucratic monstrosity from the decked out.
I always thought the idea of electronic records made sense because this way would have Bob duplication.
You go and possible everything's accessible there they could find out about you -- -- avoid wasting time it's not panning out that way it went out.
Well some of the time it is panning out let the majority -- time physicians are finding especially in a private practice setting that it is not cost effective.
That is 218% less productive for them to actually use an electronic medical record.
And a lot of their attention is diverted away from their patient towards the electronic medical record.
It really when you think about it that computer is that faceless bureaucrat in the room.
All right now was that computer that the president was touting -- started.
That would be the savior of that patient in the room I want to go back to early 2009 -- the president was -- react to us.
If you like your plans.
And you like your doctor.
You won't have to do what thank you keep your -- you keep your doctor if you like your health care plan you'll be able to keep your health care plan you can keep your plan.
No you can't period there will be a push that comes to child.
Where that's not going to be feasible.
And that is right -- and tell that to the approximate that twenty million people it's estimated who are gonna lose not only their health care plan.
But their physician as well when their employer -- to -- the fine rather than the escalating cost -- the approved.
Centralized planning how government insurance.
You know I think that's are gonna have a talk to a lot of small and medium sized diseases some larger business.
Types of doctors said.
Insurance is getting more more expensive I might -- drop my guard -- the -- up pay a lot less and okay resonating this has been factored in.
-- -- now six million Americans who.
-- in forming an estimated little more than a couple of weeks ago I'm sure that number's gonna go up.
So -- this was part of a grand plan.
To get the government as the single entity in -- and push -- these -- the guys out.
If that is true -- I think it is I could be wrong then what does that mean for doctors like you.
Well first of all we weren't in -- behind closed door planning session so why should I mean you're just health care about.
Right I'm just a -- senate now practicing doctor.
But I think that employers by and -- want to do the right thing but when you look at the profit margin per employee.
Bit employer has to take a look at that and if the cost of that employee's health care insurance -- scenes.
The profit made on an employee you can see what sort of -- -- that places the employer in.
Do you get a sense that dug the whole rationale.
-- providing healthcare for everybody was that.
More and more efficiency results drives cost down.
That there -- pressure put on providers.
-- to be as lean and mean as possible.
And everyone benefits we already know the premiums have gone up we already know the service has been compromised.
We were already know a lot of medical devices does this surtax and charges and fees through them are going to go well beyond the rate of inflation.
-- -- -- Well I think -- summer is stationed here in the listing of all the things that -- sort of -- heaped upon as unintended consequences.
Are a good argument as to why the federal government cannot fix what is wrong with -- health care system.
And still preserve the finest care in the world.
We can get this law repealed so that real reform can take place and that's gonna have to happen really on a more local level like the state level and Arab there are.
Plans that are available that would accomplish this you know a doctor.
Also a lot of doctors who have just dispensed with their front office or close to it.
And -- it -- is that you -- -- services.
You're gonna be charged directly you figured out what the insurance you figure -- out with whatever the government's requirement were not.
Is that a trend.
Well it is a trend.
Because physicians are placing themselves at risk not only economically but from a moral and ethical standpoint -- -- end result of these electronic medical records is to be hooked into the central planners and health and human services.
Who are going to collect data on each patient EC get your going to.
Enter and then dispense a cookbook response as to what you can or cannot do in terms that patient's care.
Amazing doctor thank you for just.
Innings and just common sense to us that it would have been a good idea of the so he votes like you.
Thank you doctor in the -- and.
